What should i do? (Action)

I have my action on my JEM7VWH to about 1.8mm from the 24th fret. I notice a lot of buzzing all over the place. I then measured the neck bow and it's about .279mm (.011") at the 7th fret.

Should I get some more bow in my neck?

That's what my PGM301 is, about 1.8mm and no buzzing with medium to light pick attack. If you haven't seen this site, you should check it out: http://www.ibanezrules.com/tech/setup/index.htm.

Hmm well it says about .4 is a good spot for .2 so I might just try that.

Yeah, just try a little more relief. Turn it a tiny bit and then recheck. Each guitar I've owned is a little different in the amount of relief required to get a good full sound all over the neck. My PGM is very difficult to get just right - a tiny bit too much relief and it's hard to play. Small tightening of the truss rod and it plays excellent.

It takes me forever to setup a guitar correctly. I've started just taking it into a local luthier and paying the 60 for a setup. In my case the results are better when he does it anyway
