Edit - I've just given the truss rod a little tweak, it turned fine today.
You're supposed to have a bit of relief. It will buzz if you have low action and no relief, at all.

And your question is
You identified the problem. You're obsessing. Stop obsessing - problem solved!
I just love folks like you, and I just love
the obsessed folks on the other end of
the scale also.
For $90, I got a custom made bass with
a neck problem. It had a $120 case. It has
a solid figured curly maple body and a 5
piece neck through construction with EMG
pickups. It didn't cost me any money to fix
I also got a Long Necker bass I have been
wanting for a very long time that had neck
problems for $150.
You guys just keep on obsessing and turnin
yur truss rod because old Tabbie is waitin in
Buy yourself a parakeet, or some tropical fish.
Mostly but not always. My squier has 1.2mm action with no relief and no buzz. Same with my old ibanez. But I see your point.
Does there need to be one?
If it were that easy eh?
Unfortunately we're not all good at fixing things! I wish I was...
I have five pet rats, does that count? I don't like parrots and fish are boring.
If you search really hard, you may find a Sub-Forum that you haven't posted this bass in yet.
you're obsessed with obsessing, IMO.
I can't stop obsessing,
I know it's hard to do but throw away that ruler and go by feel alone. If it "feels" right it is right.
Hehe. I'll give you a full point for that!
better yet, get a gig and use the bass like it was meant for!
nothing like actually playing out to help you reorient priorities and let go of trivial gear obsessions.
This. You didn't have a "problem" until you measured it. When you were just playing the dang thing it felt great. Keep playing it and put the tools down! If it starts to FEEL like there's a problem, come back and check with us.
This - I flatten out the neck 'til it starts to buzz somewhere in the 1st 5 frets, then back it off 'til that goes away...
