    There might be one right there in front of my eyes... If so, sorry but I can't find it.
    But I'd like to know if either TB or another site on the net has compiled a good "do it yourself" guide to setting up a bass.

    So far, I've always had my setups done by a luthier. But I'd like to see if I can't try my hand at it.
    -Beyond changing the strings, raising or lowering the action and the pups, I'm pretty much clueless. (I'm not even sure exactly what I should aim for when moving the string saddles on the bridge forward or backward... :oops: )

    Thanks.

    I found this website from another TB'er, Treena Foster. I feel it has the best info:

    Thanks, but there seems to be a problem with the link...

    At a glance, that seems just perfect.

    Thanks a lot. I knew there had to be such a document around. :cool:
