    Musicman stingray 5 G string high

    Hey folks.
    I'm currently using a musicman stingray 5 and I love it but I can't get the G string (&#128514 low enough (😂😂&#128514

    No matter what I try it still seems that bit too high.
    I've adjusted saddles and truss rod.
    I haven't gone near the nut yet or shimmed the bass. Maybe I should??

    All help greatly appreciated

    Hi Del
    The best way (imho) would be to shim the neck.
    bovinehost: Yes, I do agree with that, but if there's nothing wrong then there's nothing wrong.
    Beth: I would compare Bongo to Tommy Lee Jones. Bad a$$ and just hot in a weird way...
    cheezewiz: They should take their lace thongs off and play bass.

    The neck needs a shim, that should take care of the issue. Several of my Music Man's have them, it's no big deal to put them in.
