Fret buzz

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by FunkSkunk, Feb 2, 2003.


  1. The 4 frets closest to the nut on my bass buzz for all four strings. i tried raising my saddles, but to no avail, is this a truss rod adjustment issue?
     
  2. Yes. Either that or a high fourth fret.
     
  3. ok well then we are making some progress. is this something i should try to do myself or is this something that i would want to pay some one to do professionaly? i have good technical skills as far as nuts and bolts go.

    I've used to do it myself and could get it decent. Then I found a shop where all the basses on the shelf felt incredible. Turns out the owner of the store set them all up, so he does my basses for me now.
     
  5. should i be worrying about potentially doing some irreversibl damage by doing this myself?
     
  6. rock on man, thanks :)
