    When I hit the 1st fret on any given string (especially the E) hard i get a horrid fret buzz, I know I can just turn up the volume and play softer but is there anything I can tweak to maybe fix it a little?

    it's probably a truss rod thing. is it a new thing? could be the humidity, my basses are doing that right now, but at the 3rd and 4th frets.

    And we'll probably get more answers in the setup forum.......
