Hello, I am sorry to make another thread about this, I have gone through the archives for ideas and have tried some different adjustments and it has helped, but I would like to try and get a more direct answer about this problem. I have a Spector NS2000/4 neck thru. From what I have read about Spectors, the action should be able to go pretty low with a proper setup. So far I have adjusted everything a few times trying to get it setup perfectly. I have a feeling the relief may be setup in its optimum position (for this bass in particular), although, I am also thinking I could be wrong about this because my bass definetly does not play like butter!!! I am not a big guy, and my little hands and left wrist have really been taking a beating due to my high action. Naturally, I would like to get my action as low as possible without any buzzing, as seems to be the goal to most bassists setups. Basically, my issue seems to be in the uppermost frets, about 15 to 24. At the moment the action still feels too high for my liking, and these frets will buzz if I am not very gentle when plucking them. If I lower the action, these frets will not play at all. The strings (more so on A and D) will be basically resting on the fretboard . I don't even know if the truss rod goes that far down the neck. These frets are basically where the neck is attached to the body, which really scares me, since I don't think the truss rod extends this far. If this part of the fretboard is too high compared to the rest of the neck, that would probably cost a fair chunk of money to fix (I dont have money). I am not sure how well I am explaining this, so if anyone is willing to help and doesn't understand what I am trying to say, please ask. I'd really like to get this setup done on my own, without bringing it in, if possible. I am thinking it must need another adjustment in the releif, however it seems whenever I tweak it to a different position, it may correct the original problem a bit, but will create new buzzing further down to the 5th frets and below. I am not sure what I am expecting anyone to suggest..but if you have any ideas at all please reply. I spent alot of money on this thing, and would really like to avoid putting even more money into it, just so it works properly. I bought it new, so as far as I know, it should work properly already. It is still under warranty. But I like this bass. Spector said if the bass is pretty much beyond repair they will see what they can do about replacing it. However, they don't make the neck thru's anymore, so I would really like to avoid having to exchange it for something like a Q4. A Euro would be nice but somehow I doubt they will do that. hehe. Anyway, enough of my babbling. If you made it this far Thank you for reading my cry for help. Any suggestions would be very much appretiated!
