Fender Jazz Bass Buzz on A String...

    I have two brand new Fender Jazz basses: one is a Deluxe Mexican Jazz bass and the other is a Geddy Lee...

    After I replaced the strings with a SLIGHTLY lighter gauge (GHS strings), my A string keeps buzzing.

    I heard that the string post (the thing that the string attaches to at the head) is making the string go too high.

    How can I fix this...because it's pissing the hell out of me!!!

    Oh yeah! It only does it when I'm playing an open note on that string....in other words, an A.

    Thanks. :bassist:
