    Hey guys! I just bought at Warwick RockBass Corvette 5, but am having a small issue. On the B string, the 3rd and 5th frets buzz, and on the E string, just the 3rd fret buzzes. I tried playing with the action on those strings, but nothing. I must add that I can work with my hands, but have almost no idea how to fix a bass. So, does anyone have an idea as to what I might be able to do to fix the issue, or will someone like me have to just bring it in and let the pro's do their work?
    Thanks guys! :bassist:

    Loosen the truss rod a bit. Fret buzzes below 5th or 6th fret indicate that the neck is too straight.

    That seems easy enough. How much at a time would be suggested? 1/4 turn? 1/8 turn?

    I'd go with 1/4 turn loose, then tight again just enough to feel tension. Rinse and repeat after a day or so if the buzz is still there.

    Alrighty then guys, thanks a ton! I'll give this a shot, and hopefully this awful sound goes away. Its super annoying seeing as I like to play in the exact lower register this buzz occurs.....
