    Please help...

    I have finally managed to have both low and buzzless action on my Fender Jazz MIM. Almost... I just can't get rid of fret buzzing on frets from 2 to 5 on G string. It buzzes even with medium action. When I look at neck, on G-side, I see a little "pocket" on that area (no pics, sorry).

    Pocket meaning the neck is warped?

    On G-side, neck has a slight "spoon-like" shape when looked from side. ("handle" from 6th to 20th fret and "...." (don't know word in English) from 2nd to 5th fret)

    It might be slightly warped, I guess.

    Anyone???

    I think that I have red here on TB that many Fenders have problems with buzzing on G string between 2nd and 5th fret. I hoped there is someone who had and fixed this...
