I'm repairing a Fender P-Bass and have a question. I was going to use the old "rule of thumb" for setting string height at the nut...half the diameter of wound strings at the first fret. I then decided I would rather set the nut up like I normally do on guitars by using .005" at the first fret with the string pressed down between frets 2 and 3. I then realized there may be a different measurement for bass guitars. So, is there a standard measurement for string height at the nut on a bass guitar? If so, what is it? Thanks for the help!!!
