I did a great job of defretting my Hodad, gave it 8 coats of polyurathane, wrote about it in the defretting thread - and then popped some strings on it a couple of hours ago. .... .... It's buzzing bigtime at the 2nd and 3rd fret (uhh... ) on the A & D string, and nothing is stopping it. I'm NOT new to setting up a bsss, so telling me to raise the action or give it more relief will not be helpful. I went back and forth from super straight neck, to a pretty substantial bow (for my tastes) - and it's not going away. It presently has what I consider a fair amount of relief in it, the action is higher than I'd like it to be - and I'm not happy. Is there any solution??? Can I do chiropractics on the bass? If I bend it there it gets better for about 20 seconds. Can I twist the neck and/or throw it in my oven or something? If I raise the nut will that do anything??? I don't imagine so. If I put nylon strings on it will it be better, or worse? HELP!?!! I love(ed) this bass! I want this thing to sing - with great action - what can I do???? I don't want to beleive it's hopeless. If you haven't an answer please at least give me a bump till someone reads it that does. Thanks.
