    I have a friend who picked up a new Sting bass recently. Seems like a nice bass. There is some fret buzzing on the E & A strings around the 10th fret & higher. The neck seems pretty flat with just a slight relief and the action seems alittle high. He's afraid to lower the action thinking that it will buzz more? Maybe a neck adjustment? If so, which way?

    Looks like we ironed it out. Straightened the neck a bit and lowered the action. Seemed to solve the problem. Oh yeah, and a new set of flats.
    I liked this bass so much I went out and bought one today. Found a new ,flawless Sting bass at GC for $449! Score!
