    When I pop my g sting (lol that sounds funny) on frets 1-9 it sounds great but from 10 - 21 it does not sound as good. I get a slight rattle sound if I let the pop ring out. Action seems fine at 6/64 and neck is pretty straight at .012”. Not hitting pickup either. Any ideas?
     
  2. Try adding some relief to the truss rod. Your action may be fine, but it sounds like fret buzz to me.
