In Reply to: Holding the neck up. posted by RICHY on August 03, 2001 at 08:15:52:

: Recently I've found having to hold the neck of my bass up while playing annoying and getting in the way of playing. If I use my fret hand to hold it up, moving up and down the neck is a problem. Using my playing hand to push down on the body of my bass gets in the way of that hand playing.

: Do I have to try and live with it or are there any ideas that could help???
: Thanks...Richy.

You need more weight on the wood. How I solved the same problem was making a new body to the bass out of heavier wood. A more simple method might be connecting metal on the back side of the bass' body. The easiest way would be getting a new bass.
