Neck relief question on new KM630
Hi everyone, Im new around here, but have just started a semi-serious relationship w a Kentucky KM630, bought new, and would like to hear the panels ideas about this.
Let me start w saying that I have played bass guitar for allmost 30 years, and the last 5 years have been working parttime as guitar repairman w a small 2-person workshop in western Denmark..
Ok, the problem:
This KM I bougth had about 8 high points on frets from 1-12, the shop took it in for adjustmnet, and they have now reduced it to 2 high points, should be fixed next time, or I will just do i myself.
My biggest worry is that the trussrod has no tension on it at all, and the neck has allmost no bow/relief either... I plays sort of ok, (to my beginning hands(, but I nrmally like the action low on my instruments, and wondered if it should be called a faulty neck and returned for good??
(I dont know what tension strings are on it, but i suspect it is John Pears mediums, since thats what they gave me as extra set of strings... )
And what would a normal low string height be, at 1 and 12. fret, I have searched but not found anything, so maybe the forum could give a few hints...
I hope somebody will give their input , and wish everyone a good evening...
