    I got a new fender standard jazz but the strings all buzz like no other, the action is set very poorly. By tightening my bridge saddle things. Those things at the bottom where the strings go through, can that hurt my bass at all? on my E it won;t stop buzzing until i tighten it up so that the string's resting on the cloth part of the string. Is this bad for the bass? Please help
  2. Dont adjust the screw thing (located on the back of the bridge) however adjust the saddle itself(up and down) by using an Allen Wrench and putting it in the holes located on the top of the saddle...

    The screw adjusts intonation and I think you need to retonate it if the saddle is that far in:)

    Good luuck!

    Follow this link to a doc about bass set up. It's a Carvin manual, but this info is good for any brand. You probably need to do a combination of truss-rod adjusment and string height - neither of which are difficult, as long as you have instructions.

  4. Do some reading and learn the names of the parts on your bass..........then you can ask more intelligent questions.
