The Essential Bass Maintenance & Set-up Guide


Course available to Academy members only

Course Overview:

As a bass player it’s a must that you can not only care for your instrument, but also understand how it works from a technical standpoint. You must know exactly how to make adjustments to your bass so the playability of your instrument is optimal. Without an instrument that plays well you could be inheriting and developing all sorts of bad habits that aren’t your fault!

In this course master luthier Chris May of Overwater Basses is going to give you a lesson in the history of the bass guitar, and then take you through his step by step process of setting up a bass.
