congrats on the new/old bass
I just love those Fireglows after they have had a chance to age and warm up.
....if you find but a fraction of the joy mine has brought me it will be a fine investment.
Check the trussrods. There are some that have issues because they were not properly adjusted. You might also see if the.0047 cap has been removed or bypassed.
I did the bypass mod to mine and was very pleased with the difference. I also put on a set of TI flats. They are a nice low tension flatwound.
Thanks again for the advise morrow.I should recieve the bass in 3 days .....I'll post an update.
