I have the same problem with my Jazz Bass after I took it from luthier. He is the best in my area, and he did a flawless refretting job on my bass, also the neck is 30 years old without any twist, and, he even sand the neck pocket perfectly... But it seems that problem is in the previous string set ( DR lo-rider 100-40) which I kept on bass and they are very unbalanced I may add... I have far a lot of relief on G side of the neck but on the E side the neck is dead straight! And, as a consequence, I have some fret buzz on my G at 8-10 frets when I'm trying to set up it lower than 1.6-1.7 mm at 12th fret... All other strings are perfectly sounds even with 1 mm action height adjusted... Today I`m gonna buy a D'Addario Balanced Nickel Strings (107-45) set and give them a try. See, if it will help...
