Actually the intonation will invariably change slightly. If you care at all, just adjust the action, and then the intonation.


Truth is spoken. If you are really worried, get it set up professionally with lower action.

Ahhhh! Help! It's dangerous!!

But yeah, the intonation could change slightly, but the change could be so slight you won't notice.

I actually just found the beauty of having high action with a bit of neck relief... now I can dig in and NEVER get that clack!

HOW!!! Tell me NOW!. I have been looking for a comfortable way to play hard without getting that horrible CACK CACK CACK, during every note.

PM, or would you like me to inform the entire board?

Well, I used to love straight as an arrow necks. I wanted the strings pretty much flush against the frets when checking relief. However, after my Warwick setup, I found out that having about a dime, or a dime and a half's thickness of relief when pressing the first and last fret to be PERFECT.

However, the action needs to creep up a bit. I could probably stick 2-2.5 nickels between my last fret and the B string. However, it still plays like a dream, and I can dig in without CLACK CLACK CLACK. When I dig in HARD (just to test it), there is a pleasant grunt, but no harsh clack. I can now max out the treble on my bass' preamp.

I also found slapping to be easier, clearer, and less harsh sounding. Strange.

Yep, but with the relief set up the way it is, it won't feel like it. That's the beauty of it. The acion seems high (relatively high), but it plays as well as low action. Better for me, as I don't get that clack limiting motion and I can get 'under' the string.
