    First of all, I dont know what forum to put this in, So I'll leave it to Mr. Wheel.

    I was just curious what your action is on your E & G strings?

    Sn0wblind:

    You'd have an easier time finding out where your threads should be posted if you kept your questions restricted to one topic. Your first question involves the instrument's setup, so that's where it's going.

    The second question has been answered before in many other threads. The most recent one is http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=21052 . You can find others if you conduct a search.

    Sorry if you misunderstood my question(Big Wheel). But I wanted to compare action heights to different genre's of music( i.e., higher action for slappers).

    I have about 1 mm on most of the strings and 2 mm on the E and B strings.

    Handmade German 4-string neck-tru w/ maple body and 7-piece maple/mahogany neck, ebony fretboard and rosewood top. The guy who built it now owns his own bass company - Human Base

    www.humanbase.de

    I got it 2nd hand, but there's a fretjob due some time in the future (the action on the G is now little higher than it used to be due to some buzzes).
    I'd like to get a computer-aided fretjob - cf. www.plek.com
