Very nice, the top with the holes is very interesting. Played one in NY shop when these first came out.

Hello all,
i recently bought this Fortress from 1993, which i like very much.
It plays really great with low action. The only thing weird about it is how the saddles on the bridge align after i set the intonation. I already tried different strings but it stays this way, should i worry about it? I have never seen it like that.

cheers
Jakob

That's a lovely bass, I had the chance to buy an identical one (maybe the same one :p) earlier this year but the seller pulled out with some bullshit story.
I'm putting EMG Geezer Butler's in my other one though, can't wait!

Hey, so while changing the strings i did a proper Setup from scratch. Now it looks much more normal :).
Plays even better now aswell.

Really love those 1993 Fortress Basses :)

@Gnermo You can't go wrong with other pickups. The PJ Balanced MEC are really horrible. The 5 string version in my Fortress V sounds way better though.

I tried the EMG GZR as a PJ configuration in my Nobby, but the passive didn't do much for me. Put back the Alembic.
Maybe the active EMG x are a better choice ...
