Members mintyice Posted June 10, 2010 Members Share Posted June 10, 2010 I got my new guitar last week (Xaviere xv-820 Dark Ash, awesome guitar by the way), and the same day I got it set up at my local sam ash. I got DR tite fit 10s put on, and everything was fine. The tech did point out that one of my frets (9th, I think) is higher than the others and could be sanded. I choose to ignore the problem because I think it was liveable. He said it only buzzes when you play hard on it, which is true. Well the day I got it set up (keep in mind it was hot/humid that day), it was awesome. Played beautifully except for the buzz on that fret. However, the new day, I was getting buzz everywhere (2-5 frets on EADGB and still on the 9th E), so I took it back to sam ash that monday, the tech said that yeah the neck definitely moved so he adjusted the trussrod again and it was back to normal (still with 9th fret buzz). Well now it seems to have moved again and I'm getting buzz in a lot more places (all below the 9th fret). Can trussrod and string height adjustment fix this problem, or should I just bite the bullet and spend $40 on top of the $70 from the first set up? The guitar was only $189 and it seems ridiculous to pay more than half of that to get the thing playing properly. Is there something I can do without bring it to the tech that can fix it? The problem is so annoying that I spend more time trying to find where the buzz is than actually playing guitar. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
