| | Buzz/Clack when fretting
I've been fooling around with setting up my bass on my own (not very experienced at this, to put it mildly) and am getting very paranoid.
So I've managed to set the action as low as possible with limited (barely any) buzz with my moderately fierce plucking. That would be about 2mm at 17th fret on E string.
But I'm getting quite a strong "buzz" when I'm fretting the notes. Not when I strike the strings, but when I'm actually pressing the string down with my left hand. Is that normal or is that bad? As I said, I'm getting confused and paranoid. I don't want to bring it to a tech once again, I'd like to learn this on my own. I've even tried to set up the truss rod. No buzz on lower frets, a bit more... borderline after the 14th-15th fret, but definitely playable. But the noise when I fret is worrying me. Any knowledge on that?
Also, I think there's another weird thing: my A string is significantly more "sensitive" to action that my E string, meaning it's actually set a wee bit higher than the E string, otherwise it buzzes. The strings are new. Any advice on that?
And, lastly, the G string is noticeably lower than the rest, is that normal? It doesn't buzz and it is the thinnest string, but still, when I look at the strings from the side, the 3 top ones are more or less parallel while the G string is clearly visible, sitting lower than the rest.
