I'm having a hard time getting rid of 1st, 2nd, 3rd fret buzz on the 1, 2, 5, and 6 strings on my Js10th. When i got it new, the action was incredibly low and there were NO string buzzes anywhere. Now i've got a lot of string buzzing going on especially in the lower fret registers mentioned above.....and on the 2nd string in the high frets(20-22.....it chokes out a tad also when i bend up there).
First of all, i straightened the neck and then heightened the bridge to where there is no buzz. (the action is way too high when all the buzzing goes away.....and there is no way i can play the guitar with that kind of action!)
I then tightened the truss to give a little backbow because i noticed that the neck had a forward bow. I tightened it to improve the action in the middle of the fretboard. Then i tried lowering the bridge as low as possible without allowing fret buzz, except maybe a couple buzzes only on the low E, as i'll accept that. The action at this point is still too high, not like it was when i got it new.
I tried readjusting the neck and height again....but i cannot get the action the way it was when it came to me brand new.
What must be done to get rid of the buzz at the 1, 2, 3 frets and 20-22 of the second string??
Do i have to readjust the nut height? Put some shims at the bridge? File the 1,2, 3 frets where the buzzing occurs??
Another thing i wonder is.......if the Js
neck is multiradiused and the nut is one radius......doesnt this prevent lower action at the low frets??
What is the nut radius anyways? and what is the radius at the nut end and butt end of the fingerboard??
Any help would help!
