I never lose one ;)

Anyway, I got my 4003 FG today and am amazed at discovering it :o

If i have any difficulties, I'll call for help, but for instance, it's complete pleasure !

Thank you, John Hall and all your staff for making a so amazing instrument !

I totally understand what you mean! I had a hard time putting mine down the first few days! Enjoy.

For the record, all instruments DO come with the bridge wrench. Everything else is just a standard screwdriver, except for the neck adjust tool. But I bet less than 1% of people would ever touch it.

I had a little rattling on the treble side, a 1/4 turn counterclockwise of the treble truss and perfect...

I now have just a little tiny thing left :
i have a very light resonance sound "internal" around the G (played on E string), it seems to come from inside the bass and it doesn't go through the amp at all. I tried moving just a tiny bit the two trusses with no success, could it be something else, like cable touching pickguard, something unscrewed inside near pickups ?

Off topic, but isn't it funny that this (I guess) is the only bass forum that you can join and the handle "Fender" isn't already taken? ;-)

I sometimes wonder why most people are afraid to do basic set-up to their instruments.

When I gave lessons, I used to devote some time to showing young students the proper way to change strings, showed them how to intonate the bridge, how the truss rod works (never had the pleasure to use plural form - 'truss rods'...) It's really not that complicated, and you can always set it up exactly the way you like it, experiment with different makes and gauges of strings, etc.

Yeah, but it's like calling yourself "Dog" on a cat forum.

Hello again

Are there "Standard" measures for action and neck curb ? Have I missed them in the manual ?
Just to check the setup
Thx
