    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    Spent a long time with it plugged in today. I bought it as a 4-string companion to my Bongo 5 HS--I found I could play faster and mute a little better on a 4-string--and it is exceeding my expectations. I love the sound--just like the bongo 5 HS but a little tighter and clearer. And--unexpected bonus--it is super light! And, with the new lightweight tuners it balances perfectly. So now I'm in Bongo Bliss--I've got the 5-string for that deep low end and the 4-string for the more technical stuff.

    And if you'll excuse me, I think I hear it calling me again....

    Update--I've taken this out on a few gigs now and it just KILLS. I love how it sounds. Even better, (after a raised eyebrow or two) the sound guys love it. And there is definitely something about it that garners a certain amount of extra attention, if ya know what I mean....
