Tinging/buzzing noise when pressing down on a fret.
So my Musicman SUB bass came a couple of days ago and it's making annoying tinging noise when i press down on a fret. This makes it difficult to play hammer ons because it creates a metallic noise. My Ibanez i used before doesnt make any noises when i press down on a fret. Why is it doing this, and how much will it cost to repair it?
You probably have a high fret just above the one you're pressing.
Take a straight edge and check three frets at a time - even a credit card can work. If the card never rocks on any fret, they're level - if it rocks on any fret, that fret is high.
Any competent guitar tech can level frets.
Do yourself a favor and run some searches here on TB for "fret leveling" and "high fret" and you'll learn a lot about this.
As to why/how much, not enough information yet.
If you have a 6-string guitar around look at the second fret under the G string, and you'll probably see what I'm talking about.
1) new fret
2) raise the string a little
3) live with it
4) don't play that note
