Buzz on the D string

    Hey All

    I've got a buzzing problem going on. It happens only on the D string, and only at frets 11-15. My action is not super-low, though it is fairly low. All my strings are roughly at the same action height, so I'm not sure why it only buzzes there. Any ideas?

  2. Quick solution, raise the saddle on the D string just enough for the string to stop buzzing.

    If that doesn't work, write back, I have a couple more things you can do!

    Quick, to the point and absolutely correct! The diagnostics of setup are really fun to fathom out and with just a few rules of thumb, it's "almost" an exact science. The "almost" part is where the fun comes in. :)

    By the way, thank you ,Treena. You are a very welcome part of TB.
