    I have the fretless bass(Fender J-style neck)
    fingerboard is ebony....(there is no finish=polyester or polyurethern on that)
    I like that sound....natural growling.........

    but there is some buzz between 9th and 12th fret positions on E-string.
    I tried to set the neck very straight...or loosen it
    but didn't worked out!!!!
    I changed strings.... I check up the hardware....
    didn't worked out...... -.-

    help~ I just wanna know why there is buzz~
    Is it hot spot or dead spot?
  2. Is the neck straight (aka with some relief)? What about string height?
