i had a luthier look over my bass to check for cracks and all that jazz. no cracks or anything major, but my soundpost is in a bit of a strange place. it's seated on top of a cleat from a repair, and it's too close to the foot of the bridge- infact i think it's partially directly under the foot. the luthier that looked over the bass basically said if i like the sound of my bass, just leave it. "strange things sometimes work really well for a given bass." i totally agree with him. but, as im sure you'll all understand, i'm curious if my bass will sound better if it's moved into the standard placement. it's likely that the bass would need a new post made if i want to move it. curious to hear if anyone has had a similar situation, and if you would move it or not. i tried just now to get a photo of it, but with the mirror inside the F-hole it's pretty tough to get a photo that really shows what it looks like. i'll try again later. as a side note, i dont plan on doing anything myself and will take the bass to a qualified bass luthier if i decide to do anything.
