    Hello, I recently bought a squier precision classic vibe ... when I change the strings the second string has a buzz between frets 3 and 13.
    I raised the saddle a bit and the buzz decreases but the string is very high compared to the others ...
    I tried to rectify but the problem continues ... ideas?
    (sorry my english i speak spanish)

    Did you buy the bass new? Sounds like a popped fret or maybe a twist in the neck, which would be covered under warranty. Have you adjusted the truss rod? Might need a little relief.

    Did you go to a lighter gauge string?

    Try 1/8 to 1/4 turn to loosen the truss rod. You might have to lower the action at the bridge afterwards, but that should help give the string a little more clearance in that fret range.

    I use .45,
    I try with some .40 strings and it makes it less

    It sounds like a setup including a look at the height of the nut along with truss rod adjustment and intonation and bridge setup. If you are not experienced with doing setups you should find a store or someone near you who can.
