    I recently bought a Jay Turser violin bass, but I can't seem to get rid of the fret buzz on the D string. I've tried adjusting the bridge, but that didn't work. And suggestions? Thanks

    Truss rod or fret level. Or both.
  4. Is it buzzing on all frets or just certain areas on the neck? Like is it buzzing near the first few frets or more toward the middle of the fretboard or all? If its just the middle of the fretboard and maybe also the first few frets you may have some backbow in which case you would loosen the trussrod a bit. If its the whole neck that usually means the string is to close to the fretboard. If you already raised the bridge than its possible the slot in the nut for that string is cut too low.
