    Hi all, I just set up my new Ibanez GSR100BKL, a left handed Ibanez. It has one Music Man style pickup and a tone and volume. Very simple but very nice easy to play bass.

    I play the bass left handed, but the strings are strung right handed. In other words, I learned on a right handed bass/and guitar and never switched the strings.

    I put in the new Ibanez OEM right handed nut and restrung with new medium gauge Elixer bass strings. Now the F note, first fret on the E string buzzes. I' turned the truss a bit, raised and lowered the string, but still a slight buzz.

    Suggestions? Thanks :help:
