I have played a Ric 4003 for years. I'm a newbie to setup because I've never had to really tweak the Ric. I'd just string it and it would play beautifully. I recently purchased a 5 string Peavey Grind. I chose it because for the money, this one happened to be well constructed and it played very well and fast. The only complaint I have is being able to get the action adjusted low enough. I prefer to have the lowest action possible. The strings almost touch the frets on the Ric with no problem of buzz anywhere along the neck. I've tried to lower the action on the Grind, but the saddles bottom out before I even get close to where I want it. I'm thinking of grinding off the bottom of the saddles slightly to attempt to get the action lower, but I'm already getting buzz mostly on the B,E,A strings in the middle of the neck. The action also gets higher closer to the bridge. Would a lighter gauge of string help with the buzz as I adjust the action lower? I'd love to hear any ideas.
