i have a de-fretted bass that i need hlpe with on the action. due to it having frets, the actions was horrible for the first 5 frets, so when i cleaned the strings i sanded the nut down a bit.

now the action is fine by the headstock, but it steadily increases as it nears the bridge.

i'm assuming i have to adjust the rod, but i do not know exactly what to do. can anyone help or point to a faq?

thanks in advance
