    Hi all!

    Although I´ve owned a bass for 8yrs now. I have never really got into the field of setting it up until now.
    I own a Washburn XB500, I recently bought DR Low Rider strings for it, it´s the same gauge that I always use. But now I´m getting lot´s of unwanted fret buzz. I doubt that it´s the strings fault, this has probably got to do with the setup of the bass. I´m getting buzz on E, A, D and G on 2-12, 15 frets, depends on the string. And I want to know how to get rid of it. I also like to have the action low and comfortable.
    Could someone guide me through the process of getting rid of unwanted string buzz?

    With best regards,
    Ivar
