How can I increase the action on my Squier Vintage Modified 70's Jazz Bass?

truss rod and bridge adjustment will help. make sure you do the intonation when you're done. someone will post a website soon that tells you how to do it.

Messing with the Truss rod. Do not do it though, I do not want you breaking that Bass. Go to a professional.

All right, I'll see what I can do. I don't think I'll mess it up, I'm going to be extremely careful with this experiment.

if you want to raise the strings a little, no big deal. just turn the saddle height adjustment screws a little to the right. just be sure you turn them all the same amount of turns. put the allen wrench in and turn it one full turn, do the same to all of them, re-tune and see what you think. don't mess with the truss(take it to a pro), until you do some research.

There's no way to break the bass by loosening a truss rod, which would raise the action. However, that's a really inefficient way to accomplish that, as a neck bow has to be a certain way in order to play well, regardless of action height.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..
