    Sorry for repeating my question, its the first time her for me, so,.,.now I managed the question with a title.

    Hi all bassplayers, I have a question, after been playin for ten years o a five string handbuild bass, I bought a Fender Deluxe Zone bass, it has a tilted neck, its kind of a neck that you can tilt, ís there anyone knowing if this is good or bad, why I wonder is that, if you tilt the neck, would the sustain last in both positions, I have not yet tryed to tilt the neck, its ok as it is, but ,.,.well, anyway.

    Anyone familiar on this?

    You are talking about the relief on the neck. To my knowledge, neck relief does not affect sustain. You'll get a better answer in the Setup and Repair forum.

    Here's a thread to get you started:


    No biggie on the double post, by the way. You have the power to delete your own threads, though, so you could delete the first one...

    I don't see a duplicate of this in Setup, so I am moving it there.
