The guy I have set up my bass called me today with something I just cannot understand. I asked him to put on fender flats on my Reverend 4 string bass. He said that the E string might have intonation problems because of the way it is sitting off the bridge--something he said has to do with the string wrapping. I just could not picture why this could be a problem. He said he could razer blade the string covering a bit to thin it (that's not really what he said but something like that) and my mind was just boggled. Any idea what might be the problem here? I don't know the guy personally yet, but I figured anyone who works for a music store to set up basses has the knowledge to do it. The last set up he did for me he said he had to cut a piece of the bridge screw down. I didn't know what he meant there either, but when I got the bass, she was fine. Does it make any sense that the fender flats E string wouldn't conform well to my bass? Sounds odd.
