xaghce Posted September 25, 2007 Report Share Posted September 25, 2007 I just finished revamping a used body and neck. (they were in good condition, no visible problems) new electronics, new paint job etc. However. I have a big problem. the 3rd string on the 7th fret doesn't resonate. Sounds more like a hollow twang and then buzzes if I loosen my hold just the slightest. I've tried changing everything, string height, bridge height, nut height, sanding down the fret, adjusting the truss rod. having a higher action reduces the effect a little bit, but that's a poor solution. I can tell it's a problem w/ the fret since when I bend to that spot w/ other strings they fret out also (or die a tinny death). The odd thing is, is that I had the same neck on a different guitar a month ago and didn't have this problem. (after that the neck sat seperate from any body while it's new finish was drying) Do I need to replace the fret itself? any advice would b really appreciated!! Thanks!
