true. basses are much tighter. i guess thats cos they do play lower notes and usually dont have tremolo... but...i wonder if locking tuners would help even more.plus some kind of compensated and graphite lubricated nut.
gutars are way trickier. mostly problem areas seem to be nut (zero fret seems to be better,tonewise also) and first unwound string in a row. and of course tremolo systems.
strobostomp is on my purchase list. i hope a decent and compact tuner at last.
my nut is compensated (didnt know bout earvana but that is esentialy that) and that changed things for the better considerably
some frends recommend shaller as the only in tune tremolo solution.hmmm. have to try it.
heavier strings help too. at least at lower register.
i wonder how much fanned frets help ?
great info .keep it coming !
