I have a big bass with a 44" string length. Anyone had any experience shortening the string length by having the nut extended down and / or moving the bridge up a bit? I would particularly like to hear some pros and cons of the the longer nut option & if the volume / sound would suffer. The bridge option would of course sacrifice some sound or tonal characteristics.
