  1. thank you all for your comments. I didn't realise it changed the sound that much but now having tried a pick, I see what you mean. My main concern was about speed tho', not sound, so I'll keep trying the pick and see if I can get a bit faster.

    There is mention of finger nails. I use my fingers, not my nails. Is this normal ?

  2. When I re-started playing after a long gap, I was playing 60's covers. Now joined a new band and we're playing newer stuff. It's easier in some ways - less runs to learn, but faster to play. I've always used my fingers, but should I try a plectrum for more speed ?

  3. So as long as I get the nut in the right place, where the 2nd fret was, it should be ok ? It sounds ok with the capo, so I don't think the pup position needs to change.

    I think the only problem will be the fret markers, as lond as I can alter the truss rod.

    Anyway, I've got the saw ready.


  4. Hi, I have a normal, 34" scale headless bass, which I want to change to a short scale, 30". It looks as though I can cut the top 2 frets off, and the frets will line up with my other basses which are 30" scale. Then for example the 14th fret will become the new 12th fret, and hopefully the intonation will work.

    Any thoughts ?
