Buzzing out on high "frets" on Kingston Fretless

    Problem: The 20-22 "fret" area on my MTD Kingston Fretless 5 (24 frets) buzzes out on all strings. Any note played in that area just clicks, yet all notes are fine before and after that area.

    No excessive wear on fretboard.

    Used a ruler to test for flatness of board. No noticeable deviation from flatness.

    Tried raising strings at bridge, g string significantly, and problem persisted.

    Any suggestions?

    Try tightening the truss rod. Remember 1/4 or less at a time.
