RG 2570 Prestige Neck buzz

I bought a used RG 2570 and love it but lowering the bridge did not lower the action to where I needed it so I looked down the neck and it was almost back bowed(near straight when in tune). I adjust the truss rod (loosened it a bit) and got the small curve I desired. Readjusted the bridge retuned but still get buzzing from frets 1-5 on the low e and a string. Any ideas guys?


thanks!

Love this guitar can't put it down!

Take it to a professional tech for a setup?

Not trying to be snarky, but that's what I'd do. My apologizes if you are the professional tech.

Other than adding a spacer under the neck or Nut what can a tech do? I have seen these guys at the local Long and McQuade music store and they are doing the same thing with bridge height and Truss rod. Short of shaving frets or getting a new neck!

Take it to a pro, my 2570 is setup by Rich Harris (the man himself) and it is great, I believe in his tech section of his website http://www.ibanezrules.com/ he talks about how Ibanezes generally need some shims under the neck and other adjustments to have a really good setup.

Re: RG 2570 Prestige Neck buzz

Hey, I just got mine today, and I noticed the same problem. Doesn't really get in the way of playing though, through the amp its barely noticeable, but it does still does come thought the amp when playing on clean, and listening for it anally lol. Did you find ne solution for yours yet? And I do get a free set up at L&M, but would love to take it to a guy that is a ibanez specialist as i love my new baby so much. lol Its just a matter of a good set up i think. All N most guitars even highend onces, are not very well set up when first bought. Same happend with my explorer, but its just lovely now. aged nice for 10 years now. after all its a popluar brand and sells fast. so they dont got no time for prestine detailed set up work. Let me know if u find ne good tech I'll let you know as well.
