Thanks. I was reading that very post late last night. Along with a couple of others elsewhere. So with 2 or 4 beers in me I just took the Epi to the bench, checked to see where the bridge lay as far as level is concerned. Noted that the Bass side was a bit higher than the treble, so I just turned the 2 back screws 1/2 turn and the front 1/4 turn. Apparently the front screw being a tad higher is important for the break angle according to some random poster somewhere, and that made sense to me. Tuned it up, took it to the speakers and tested, went back and repeated, this time turning each of the 3 1/2 turn. I think I did that about 3 times and called it quits. Ended up having a waaaay better action than previously but one extra bit that was missed in the post is really important. The previously perfect intonation was now a good 1/4 step closing in on a 1/2 step flat, which wasn't surprising. I'll be doing more adjustments today. It was the quickest and easiest partial setup I've done on something new to me. I really like that system actually. Hell of a lot easier than my LP.
Isn’t wonderful to be able to have the knowledge of doing your own setup? I admire you greatly!Lowered the action a bit more and set the intonation today. Also put the Truss rod cover back as it was still good from yesterday. It's all passive so I can dial it in a lot better than the Active EQ on the Viper. It just feels more natural to me because of my guitars. But I'm not knocking the active as it's great in its own way. The Bass is feeling quicker so that's a good sign. I still might take it in to a pro though. Then I'll have a good base setup to reference.
Thanks G. I can get by with the basics but there's still a lot that I haven't attempted. Still have a LOT to learn about it as every instrument has its own variation. And it takes away from playing time unfortunately.Isn’t wonderful to be able to have the knowledge of doing your own setup? I admire you greatly!
