Hi Sheldon, I received my LSS just before new year (the green one on the new site, I think), and I must say it is a truly fantastic instrument. The sound, the feel, and of course the looks of the thing are simply stunning and one-of-a-kind. I just have one small remark: The G-string is very close to the edge of the fingerboard, and it has been a slight problem for my playing style that I keep on pulling it just over the edge creating a buzz instead of a note :) I try to adjust my fretting hand, but still I wonder if there is any way the bridge can be adjusted to bring the string a tiny bit more towards the D-string. Other than this, it's my favourite bass ever, and has put all my other top-shelf boutique basses on the top shelf of my cupboard :) BTW, I also really liked the new website! Best Regards, Espen Beepo Poulsen.

Hi Espen, There will be a very slight amount of play (room to move) the bridge plate sideways and the saddle too. Loosen the strings, then the mounting bolts and give them a push. Hold them in position while you (or a friend) tighten the bolts. Did the neck shift during transit? The neck joint is very tight, but you could try loosening the neck bolts, having a friend push the headstock towards the bass direction and tighten the bolts while holding the neck in position. If none of these do the job, we could look at machining a custom bridge plate.

I've never mentioned it, but I have the same problem with my Z3. I'm a pretty aggressive player and the G slips off the side frequently. I may be in for a new bridge plate, too. Mark

It looks like the bridge piece can be notched on the treble side where the screws mount it to the bridge to allow it to shift further. I'm going to try this fix. I'll let you know how it goes. Mark
