DBZ bird of prey setup

Well my dilemma is I cannot get the action to low on the guitar without buzz on frets 11-13 on the B string. Also i get buzz if the action is too low frets 5-7 on high E, but thats not a big deal, since i dont mind the action a little high on those frets.

Also strings 6-4 i can get the action real low no problem even though i dont need them real low. So what i am trying to say is am i doing something wrong, or does it have to do with the guitar itself.

note I have ibanez which i love and get the action super low with no buzz at all, and the action is no where near as low as my ibanezs yet im getting buzz

Sounds like possible warpage on the treble side.

Re: DBZ bird of prey setup

This is sort of on the same topic

I own 4 guitars

Ibanez prestige setup super low and no buzz on any frets or strings

Ibanez rg 350dx. Buzz on high e and b strings fret 1 also no note coming out of 17th fret g string

dbz as stated above

dean from hell ml. Buzz to barley anything coming out of high e 1st fret, and buzz on frets 11-13 low E.

Am I just unlucky or bad at setting up guitars.

note I took my dean ml and ibanez 350dx to guitar shops one said i needed a fret job, and the other said he could get rid of it, but wasnt able to
