    I have a bunch of fret buzz on about 60% of the frets and i was wondering how to get rid of it and if its with the truss rod how long does it take for a truss rod adjustment to take effect, is it immediate or does it take a while

    I have fret buzz that's noticeable unplugged but not at all plugged in. I set it up myself and am quite happy.

    Truss rod and strings height must be setup correct, so let someone with that skill do it.

    Spend some $ on a tool kit for your bass. Allen wrenches (metric and standard. Be prepared!), a feeler-gauge (auto parts store), and a small assortment of screwdrivers. This will cost you less than half of what you would spend on a setup. Then learn to do your own setups. The "setups" sticky in this forum will help you a lot.

    Acquire the right tools, and gain the proper knowledge. Its not hard.
