Neck question

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by blackwing, May 24, 2002.


  1. Hello:)


    I loosened the strings on my bass because i went to the US and i have been there for four months.When i returned and tuned my strings there are buzzes from the first fret to the 5th.

    My question is: should i let the strings adjust the neck by their natural pull or do i have to adjust the truss rod altogether?I still have buzzes even though i strung them for about 4 days now.

    Thanks:)

    Loosen the truss-rod (1/4-turn), retune and let it settle overnight.

    That should take care of the problem, if not, repeat.

    Check intonation afterwards of course.
