New bass set up.

Postby pimpadellic22 » Wed May 27, 2015 9:48 am

I just picked up an epiphone Toby. I'm getting some buzzing between the 11th and 14th fret on the E only. Would that be a saddle or trust rod adjustment?

I would try raising the saddle first. Then a slight tweak on the truss if that didn't work. It could also be that the nut for the E is too low. The worst scenario, is the neck has a twist. Others here might have a better idea. Good luck.

Check youtube for Videos by Dan Erlewine on setup. He is saying the same as Harleyyy, start on the bridge.

I think this is the one you want:

....and if you have been through a humid summer dry heat cycle, the possibility exists that a fret might have popped loose, but that generally shows up as buzzing on only one fret.

I've gone thru all of this stuff and the neck is surfboarded. I've taken the strings off and am letting it straighten itself out. Gonna wait another month and see if the moisture comes out. If not, off to the shop with it. Thank you guys for the help
