    what's up everyone. i have a fender p bass. the neck is relatively straight and i was just messing with the string height (by raising the saddles on the bride) in order to get a comfortable feel. i was just wondering if anyone had any good suggestions about how high certain strings should be, how low, etc... ANY suggestions would be greaty appreciated! thanks and take care!!

  2. Well this is my opinion.

    When i go to set my action, i do adjust it until it feels good. To the point i dont say "woo its a bit high/low" etc. This height changes too depending on how i am playing, the strings i use, the temperature.

    So yes i dont go by set measures because i may be in a halfway point, i may want to change it.

    :D:D
