: Previous answers to this question said "personal preference". Is there some typical average? On a 3/4 bass I acquired, the strings are 5/8" above the end of the fingerboard, which I think is 'way too high. My instruction book says they should be close, but of course not too close to buzz. I'm tempted to shorten the top of the bridge to place the strings at 3/8" or less above the end of the fingerboard. Any advice? thanks

The best move is to add adjusters to your bridge (have a luthier do it). It would cost you less than having to replace your bridge due to ireversible damage...
