i see this and i want to slit my wrists.

because i know you from here and i also understand having no money ..............

IF YOU SHIP ME THIS BASS I WILL FIX IT CORRECTLY FOR YOU.

for free.

... only if you have the trust that i will do it and ship it back to you.

... only if you have another bass to play while i have this one for two or three weeks.

... only if you can scrounge the money together to pay for the shipping.

its up to you.

please excuse me while i go sob uncontrollably while rocking in a dark corner.

Uh, a small shim in the bridge end of the neck pocket would have tilted the neck angle, and let you lower the action enough, and still look stock. :/

Yeah a friend of mine has a Charvel with an OFR that was installed instead of the Strat-style trem that was stock. The person who did the mod used a piece of pickguard material in between the neck bolts and the heel of the neck pocket and it tilts the neck back so that it can get really low action. I also scalloped out some of the upper frets. Fun guitar. Cool

I really like having the neck tilt back a tiny bit. The neck on my Hamer is set back at an angle like that and it's my favorite instrument to play. Plus the neck feels so thin and Gibson-y. Very Happy
