First off, my Warwick Rockbass has always had some issues with string buzzing. Even after having it adjusted by a tech it still buzzed a little but i could deal with it. Now after several months it's in need of adjustment again. Locally there isn't too many techs who have experience with the Rickenbacker dual truss rod design so pretty much my only option is to learn it myself. And i figure my Rockbass would be great for practice. I've read Gary Willi's guide to neck adjustment, no dice! It's either i have rattle with an open string or i have rattle in the first five frets or i have rattle and buzz by the 12th fret. there is no happy medium! the only way to get it decent enough to play is to have the height set way too high. if i only do the 1/4 turn you can't hear a difference in either direction. for the past hour and a half i've tighten, i've loosen, i've heighten, i've shorten,...i've given up. right now the neck is at the point where the height is high and i get buzz by playing an open string but not a fretted note. i've just gotten angry to the point of where i'm ready to pull a Pete Townsend on this Rockbass, adjusting a neck should not be this frustrating. advice please.
