Neck question

  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.

    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.
  3. Thanks man!!! will do:)

    I just hope i dont mess up:D
