Nekul Posted July 17, 2005 Report Share Posted July 17, 2005 First of all, this is by far the most comprehensive guitar building site I have found and this section in particular is a godsend. I am hoping someone can offer some advice here, I am sure this is not an isolated problem. I got an old Hondo (yeah I know) flying V from my sister for my 30th. It was real nasty but the body looks awesome. I junked every bit of hardware and just kept the body. I routed it for a floyd original, even though it is a 10" radius and I wanted it flatter. I got a Jackson style reverse headstock neck which is OK but not great. I levelled the frets, they are dead on. I set the guitar up and didnt like it so went to the turorials here and did as instructed. It was much improved. Now, the problem: Height at the nut is perfect, neck is straight, frets are level but I still have to have a reasonably high action because it is buzzing on both the treble and bass strings after about the 12th fret. It still plays OK but it just isnt comfortable with the action high and if I go lower it buzzes. It doesnt fret out with bends and the strings still vibrate OK but it just doesnt feel right. What can I do? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
