I just got a beautiful Ken Smith BSR6P bass and it needs a setup. Can anyone please offer advice- For example, can I use any string on this bass or do I need to use Ken Smith strings? I already have sets of DR and MTD taper core strings that I can use, but am not sure if this would be optimal. How high should I set these pickups up? Also, it has an ebony board that needs to be cleaned up - any suggestions on this and on polishing the bass? Thanks in advance!
