Throwing this out for any bass guitar players out there. I have an old hollow body Vox bass guitar from 50 years ago,

The guitar is in good shape but strings sit very high off the fretboard. I adjusted the truss rod and the neck seems straight. Also lowered the bridge. Unable to lower the action.

This is a guitar from a previous life, my second unsuccessful attempt to learn guitar 50 years ago.

Is higher action more normal for a bass guitar?


That ia gorgeous, but the action is super high.
