Am I being too picky?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by lowcrome66, Dec 24, 2006.

  1. It seems like no matter what I do, or what Bass I own, I have had a lot of problems with fret buzz. My first bass was a used Danelctro Danoblaster. Then I had a new Ibanez sr300dx, and now my used ibanez btb405qm. It seams like all of them have had alot of fret buzz no matter how they were set up. I know that most of my problems are from buying used instruments that have been through some abuse.

    But should I have the frets redone on my btb or just trade it in somewhere and buy something new?

    I like my action to be really low but I get a lot of buzz.. I havent found a way to get low action without a lot of buzzing.. What should I do?

    honestly..if you have the action extremely low on almost any bass you'll hear buzz.
  3. I dont like it extremely low.. just low enough so that its pretty easy to fret notes and I'll get a good slap sound
