I couldn't say who is good or not as I always do my own. You should give it a go.

Go see Jeff at music depot.

Collin Liddiard..you can contact him thru Thomas Walls School of music..

he did a great job on mine...

I wouldn't recommend Thomas Walls. From my experiences with them, they overcharge and don't even do a good job. The guys are great guys but their guitar tech isn't good IMO.

Don't be afraid to try it yourself. Surf the net, there are all kinds of great tips and how-to guides on bass guitar setup out there. Just remember when playing with the truss rod (if required) a little goes a long way! Also if it is hard to turn don't force it and then maybe take it to a pro. I was in the same boat, not really sure if I should try it, but a bit of surfing and a few beers and may bass is back in tip top shape! Only a fews beers though eh /ubbthreads/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

avoid music depot - northlands and Thomas walls.
T walls does great acoustic stuff, and the tech installs, bridges , etc well. But bass. stay away. Music depot and Northlands , ....come on give yer head a shake. But, I would say check the net. Not that hard to find info. See fender.com or Gibson.com. There is two guys in town I would trust for a set up. More on that if needed. If you can turn a screww driver you can set up your bass. Like the other dude said, when it come to truss rods a little goes a long way. Do it , do it .

Right from the Fender website.


You might want to tweak your action a couple times a year so it would be a good idea to learn. If your not changing string guages you might just have to adjust your truss rod, intonation and clean your fret board.

Good luck.

Go to Music Depot. Jeff set my bass up after someone else here in town who said they could do it screwed it up. No names but i wasn't happy. Jeff gets my vote.

Glad you got sorted out. Just curious as to what was wrong with the mystery persons setup?

07-09-2008, 05:02 PM
good for jeff and you ! now you've gotta guy to do your bass. yeah curious players wanna know

Don't want to mention names either, but does this mystery guys last name start with a W?

Cause if it does, he messed up 2 of my guitars about 3 months ago....my action was horrible when I went back to pick them up...and I had to set them up myself the next day...should have done it myself in the first place, but thought that a professional would have done a better job...I guess I was wrong.

I learned a lesson and do them myself now.

Well i will never use names here but Jeff fixed me up and now has a new customer. The bass was set up exactly the way i wanted
with low action the way i like it. It sounded very nice at practice last night.
