Thought I’d take a crack at setting up my J bass. I like tinkering with things, and it’s fun learning new stuff. I used the John Carruthers set up videos on another site. I put La Bella DT Flats and a Babicz FCH bridge on it. I like the one setscrew adjustment on the bridge. Adjusting the truss rod was no problem. I used the measurements on the video for the truss rod, string height at the bridge and the nut.
I had to file the nut at the D string a little and I wound up using my Mk1 eyeball to adjust string height at the bridge, as the measurements on the video made the action way to low. I’m going to use it tonight, when I do a lesson here. It’s not scary. I took my time and I think everything worked out. I’m tempted to take it to the tech at GC, just to check my work.
