I recall having read on the net that a lot of people are replacing the wire tailgut with flexible steel cable. The wire on my Englehardt has some slight bends and kinks that I don't like the looks of and I'm wondering if there would be any advantage to making the mod rather than just repairing (straightening) the original. If anyone knows where on the web I might find instructions for this mod, I would appreciate a URL to the site. I also have a question on setting the soundpost properly. Should the post be centered under the foot or is the position considered to be an adjustment? I've been given conflicting info on this for years and would value the opinion of the experts. I didn't mean for this post to turn into a mini-novel but since I'm on the horn - one more question. Does anyone know of a website that goes into the nuts and bolts of DB setup? I can find a number of such sites for toy bass but ,so far, no luck on DB. Thanks in advance, Pkr2.
