Hi everyone, I have an Ibanez SG 500 bass with Labella flatwounds with a Markbass 200 watt amp. Lately I have not been happy with the tone and thought maybe I need a new bass or new amp or a bass trap. But last night I just wild and kept raising the action on the strings and I loved how it sounded. It was much clearer and had a more percussive punch to it which I loved (flatwounds were buzzing a little before and this really detracted from a good tone). Unfortunately all this was at the cost of sore fret hand forearm muscles and slower play. So today I looked at the neck and concluded I could give it more bow and so gave a quarter turn on the truss rod. As a result I was able to lower the action some more and still retain the same great tone when the action was higher. So my question is can I give the neck even more bow so I can lower the action some more and still retain the same fret buzz free great tone? I am sure there is a limit to this but I believe my neck was too straight to begin with as I did a fret test that I saw on youtube (hold 1st fret and last fret and see how much clearance 12th fret has - looked pretty low to me). Thanks in advance for any response.
