Hi Den, it is hard to tell without seeing the bass. An acoustic bass needs a higher action, that's for sure! So I guess 3- 3,5 mm action for E string is normal...After trying quite hard to sell my Alien, I now have a job for it, so it stays!
However, I'd like to ask all you Alien owners, particularly those with a metal tailpiece: how far can I reduce the bridge saddle height before I compromise the break angle and get poor sound? I love the bass, but the action is a little high for my taste (and my wimpy fingers!)
Any help much appreciated!
