JWR Posted February 14, 2007 Report Share Posted February 14, 2007 Hello Friends, I have an issue with several guitars I am working on at the moment, no doubt the weather might be contributing to this problem. However, one of my customers brought in a Washburn electric acoustic cutaway with fret buzz on the 12th fret. Assessing the neck, it appeared to be straight, absolute minimal backbow. On loosining the neck (Bottom adjustment not headstock), the rod is at it's loosest. The neck however, still has no true visible change in the natural backbow and fret buzz is still happening around the 12th fret. I shimmed the saddle slightly hopefully to resolve the issue. I have found on several guitars I have worked on that loosening the truss rod all the way down does not always bring the natural backbow back in place. Can you help me with his issue? Thanks! James.
