Okay, I've posted about this before, but I've got some more info. I get a nasty buzz on my E string on Bb-C (frets 6-8). I like my action low, so I do tend to get a normal fret buzz, but this is just an odd buzzing sound. Background ... -it's a nice bass ... no junk here, and I've had it since '96 with no problems. -the truss is set with minimal relief ... I can hold down the A with my right elbow and still can compress the string slightly. -the strange, unearthly buzz occurs only on those notes ... and the weirdest thing I tried today ... Stay with me on this, I fret an A on the D string (fret 7), and a Bb on the E ... my thumb (I use floating thumb) is muting the E string while I pluck the D string ... and the buzz happens!!! (Yet I can play that same A on the D string without fretting on the E, and no buzz.) That would indicate to me that it's happening in the first five frets (right?) Any help is appreciated!!!
