black_labb Posted September 24, 2007 Report Share Posted September 24, 2007 hi guys and girls i am working on a bass and need to know what kind of action is typical at the 12th fret. i searched here and google, and only found one site which said that 2.4mm is typical at the 17th fret (which is 1.8-1.9 at the 12th assuming a perfectly flat fretboard). this didnt really seem right to me, and i couldnt find anything else on the subject. whats a good number to work to for low action (so i can get it there then raise the bridge to get it to the most suitable action) the bridge i have doesnt seem to have too much vertical travel so i want to be pretty close to where i want. thanks for the help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
