    My p-bass is buzzing when the upper frets are played. There is quite a bit of releif. Should I turn the truss rod a 1/4 turn clockwise? There is no buzzing anywhere else.
     
  2. which frets? 1-6 or 6 -21???
    upper can mean a lot of things!

    about 14-19
     
  4. raise the bridge saddles a little bit and see if that helps....
     
  5. Mine buzzes too, but like at Fret 1 on the A string and D string...any remedies?

    Raising the action would indeed get rid of the buzzing, but I believe if I straiten out my neck, the buzzing will go away, and I can have the luxury of low action.

    If it helps any, the buzzing is against the last few frets.
     
  7. that would work... is the neck on your bass shimmed in anyway shape or form?
