Congrats! Love that finish! I debated between this and my natural J-bass and it was a real tossup. Hope you enjoy :slight_smile:

Hey @crippledring , really enjoying the course, on lesson 2 module 2 at the moment, going well, bass feels and sounds great but have a few questions.
My strings range in “action”( just learnt that) from E to G, where the G string is close to the pickup more so than the other strings and the E string is higher than the rest, is this normal? Can see my saddles on the bridge (hope that’s right) do range in height to the strings, again , not sure if this is correct?

Hi @Ian321, this is definitely a technical question and what you express is right and founded. I would suggest you speak with a fellow bass player. However, if your current “action” feels comfortable reaching your E string and the same is true with the other strings then OK. Don’t be too much in a hurry if I may say. Some bass players love their strings as close as feasible to the fretboard, some others as remote as possible. The sound and play feel will vary accordingly. Maybe lesson 2 is a little early to be fully acquainted with such esoteric, also physical concepts. Let us know and “bon courage”

There’s a lot of really great info on these threads:

Tons of great info in there, and there’s some nice videos as well if you scroll far enough!

This is normal. The larger the string, the more it will disrupt the magnetic field of the pickup making a difference in how loud that string is.

Unless you are having an issue with one of your strings being louder than the others, It’s nothing to be concerned about.

…and if it is an issue, you can adjust both string and pickup height very easily on most basses.
