String Height At Fretless Bass Nut?

Recommended Posts

What is the common String height - fretboard to underside of string - for a fretless bass 35" at the nut?

0.5mm, 1mm?

Any tabelles on this?

Stewmac: .030" (guitar, fretted)

For setups I use feeler gauges under the string at the first fret. If it is a fretless bass, I use the same gauges under the string where the first fret would be.

For a 5-string bass:

1 .020" .5mm

2 .023" .58mm

3 .026" .66mm

4 .030" .76mm

5 .035" .89mm
