    Hi all! Just a quick status quo...
    I bought a maple feneer and made a shim about 0.8mm thick. After I took the neck of i saw that in my Stingray is no shim at factory default. Also my screw holes are completely on different locations as on Berts picture. I recognized that my neck after i took it of the body seems twisted to the right site. Is this normal?
    I putted my shim directly on the bridge edge of the neck pocket. Sad but true it's not enough. Even with this shim I get a string action about 2.75mm on 12th fret. But my saddle on e is still laying on the bridge. So next up I will make a new shim maybe as twice as high. I'll come back for more infos when time permits! Have a nice one!

    I saw that bass giving you some problems since years:

    First thing I recommend is to bring the saddles back to standard like that:

    (The intonation would be the last thing on my list).
    Put some new strings on (probably yours have too much tension).
    The neck from your photos you posted in 2014 afais looks okay - no twist to the right.
    The picture I posted was from a StingRay5 with a bit different neckpocket.
    You have done everything right.
