    ...on my conklin gt-4. i think something is wrong with my frets, but i am not sure. if i play G# on the G string even slightly louder than quietly, it sounds like its buzzing against the 4th or 5th fret. G on the E string also buzzes a bit on the 5th.

    but here is the REALLY annoying part. F and F# on the A string produce an extremely loud buzz being produced behind them. actually, most of the notes played will have some kind of buzz. does anybody have a clue as to what is wrong?
  2. How confident are you at doing your own setups?

    Perhaps you need to raise the action on the bass, adjust the trus rod etc. Could be a number of things. If you feel up to adjusting stuff (its not hard!) then we'll go into it. ;)
