    Does the BB allow you to have a low action? I have a fret buzz on the first fret on the G string, so I'm curious if it's a problem with my bass or if I'm asking too much, in terms of the height of the action.

    The action is relatively low. Not too much, but it's confortable for me. I don't have fret buzz with mine.

    Humm, buzz on the 1st fret seems like it could only be that the nut is filled too low there. You could try wedging something (piece of a tooth-pic?) under your G-string and see if raising it gets rid of the buzz. If that works you can use a mixture of baking soda & superglue to fill in the G slot on the nut (presuming it's bone) and once it cures - file a new slot to the correct depth.

    I ordered this bass 3 mths ago, finally arrived last week so I picked it up yesterday. Changed the pickguard from Black to Tortoise. Solid instrument with 18 volt electronics. More later once I've had more of an opportunity to get to know her better.

    Snagged a Stingray Special 4H in aqua green a week ago.

    While the tone is pretty much the same Stingray tone that we all know and love and the substantially lighter weight than its predecessors is nothing to complain about, the roasted maple neck is the star of the show here.

    Silky smooth, comfortable and fast. Just a joy to play! Anyway, no photos yet but just a video I uploaded on youtube!

    Pretty interesting I saw the touring bassist for the smashing pumpkins uses bb734a basses. They must be good!

    Since the '78 P Bass had to go back (truss rod and neck issues...), I decided to try something new :smug:

    2019 Gibson Thunderbird IV. I'll open a NBD topic once I'll have it tried plugged in - for now, 'veI only managed to clean and set it up, along with having the strings changed :laugh:

    Finally got them all out for a family portrait. 18 of 21 anyway. My Schecter Michael Anthony is in Pawn, my Squier 50's Classic Vibe P is apart for re-fin and I forgot to get my Kramer Duke Bass out of it's case. I certainly feel Blessed.
