    I have a 1988 Fender Japenese P bass black with maple fretboard. If I tune down to C# F# B E whats your advice on moving the saddles and such?

    move them until you have the same note open and in 12th fret (foward or backwards).

    Forward, back, up or down? Will I need to adjust the truss rod?

    I you have to ask, it's maybe better to have it set up by a pro.
