    I recently did a setup on my kubicki and i got it playing pretty close to perfect for me. But when I slap on the 9th fret on the G string it buzzes, I think it's being picked up by the amp aswell, im not sure. I've had buzing in the 1-5 and 12+ frets but im kinda stumped for the middle. what can I do?

    Sounds like maybe there is a high fret?

    I don't think so, becuase it didn't do this before. Just when I have the action set fairly low and such. Plus kubicki's fret job is fantastic. I think I might need to raise the g string a bit, im not sure though.

    thanks for the reply

    Your action is to low. Heh!
    Try to raise it at 2mm above the 12th fret. Heh!
    Might work for you. Heh!
    Good luck. Heh!
