Really enjoying your blog. I notice that you talk about adjusting string height but don’t follow up with the fact that changing string affects intonation. I was surprised to find you didn’t address that in the same post.

Remembering how I first started messing with string height and knew nothing at all about intonation, and I really screwed things up pretty royally.

But since I’ve just run across your blog today, haven’t yet had the chance to delve more deeply. Perhaps you’ve already addressed how to set intonation. Can’t wait to check it out.

Thanks for a great blog!
Tim

This jazz is only 5-6 years old and it has a badass bridge with the G string at least a 32nd of an inch lower than the rest . EAD are fine. Help needed to raise that knuckle up a bit .Thanks Andrew in new england [ hailed from Liverpool area a long time ago

How do I set it correctly? Before a tech messed with my bass it had extremely low action with no buzz. It played so easily no one could believe it. Since they messed with the angle and truss rod, I have not been able to find anyone to even get it where I’d consider it playable (for more than maybe 20 minutes. Big difference. Would neck angle have nothing to do with this? I really want my beloved bass back!

Unfortunately, I have yet to find a repair person who understands this, even though I explain it. They still insist on using shims to adjust the neck angle, which leads to a neck that shifts. When I get the time I’ll have to pull the neck off, ditch the shims, and adjust the thing correctly.

My impression is that neck pitch only needs to be adjusted if you run out of adjustment for string height at the bridge. Is this correct?

Turns out my Maxtone needed the frets dressed. I kept lowering the action and it got worse. My frets were uneven as hell!! LOL

Another possibility at the lower (more frequently used) frets is fret wear. If the lower frets are more worn than those higher up the neck, you’ll get some buzz.

I get buzzz at the first fret, never the 12th or 24th of my E string. I set the action just high enough to slide a card below the first fret.

thoughts?
