Buzzing on my six string bass

    When I pluck the E or A string on my new SX 6 string bass, it buzzes. It buzzes when the string has no frets held down and when a fret is held down. Also, depending how hard I pluck them, I have the same issue with my low B and D string.

    So is there any easy way I can fix this, or should I get it set up at the guitar store?

    (Also, it has two truss rods)

    Setup and possible fretwork may be needed. SX basses can be cool, but their fretwork is just slightly better than not doing any fretwork at all.
