: Does anyone have suggestions regarding string height? I read someshere they should be 6mm for G, 7mm for D, 8mm for A, and 9mm for E. However, this seems a little high for me!

My jazz bass is 5mm on G, 8mm on E. There's no point in measuring A and D; they're along for the ride. Michael Moore is 1/4" on G, 7/16" on E. It's your choice, and will vary with what you play and how. The real point of an adjustable bridge is to cope with rising and sinking of the top with weather changes between winter and summer.
