After a couple of trips to Cincy last year for setups, I've been really happy with the sound I'm getting out of my carved bass. When I bought it, the fingerboard needed dressing badly, and the neck was as thick as one of Rosanne Barr's thighs. The guys at the Bass Cellar did a great job with the fingerboard, but there was still a VERY slight buzzing noise coming from the notes G-G#-A an octave up on the G string. They also thinned the neck a bit, which helped make it somewhat easier to play. They tried to replace the nut, but couldn't get it off. Now, about a year later, the sound is still good, there is still a slight buzz in the aforementioned notes, and the neck now feels like one of Rosanne's calves. The open E buzzes slightly because of the nut being too low. I have several questions before I call the guys up again: 1) Would it be considered extremely "fussy" to take the bass in to have that 3-note range dressed again, especially if it's about the same as when they finished last time? 2) What should I do about the nut? Take it in and say, "you couldn't get it off to replace it last time. This time I want you to try harder!" ? 3) I'd really like a thinner neck, but I'm afraid of getting it too thin and then regretting the decision. Should I find one of the basses they have in stock that has the shape I like (roughly) and say "make it like this?" 4) Can they put the soundpost back exactly like it was before they worked on it, or will it always be a little different after it's been worked on? Are there different options for soundpost placement for different types of sounds? If so, what are they? I'm not in a hurry on this one, but I'd like to do a little homework before going back. Any/all constructive replies are welcome. Thanks.
