I have two guitars, a squier stratocaster and a mexican standard strat. The neck on my squier sucks, so i figured that I could improve its playability by switching the neck with the one from the mexican strat. the mexican strats neck had a very nice adn smooth feel. The neck change wasnt too stellar, so I just put eveyrthing back. Now, on my mexican strat, the action is f***ng horrible! The buzz is unbearable. one factor that might add to it was that i put on a new set of strings. Old ones were 42's, new ones are 46's, not too much of a diff tho... I don't know how i can adjsut the action, because i dont wanna touch the saddles. the action was fine before i changed the neck, and i didnt touch the saddles. When i put the mexican neck back on the mexican it started to freaking buzz liek a b***h! Any help please? liek adjusting the truss rod or somethign would help maybe?

tightening the truss rod may help, turn it about 1/4 of a turn.

just messing, if you want to be sure your not going to screw anything up take it to a shop or a luthier
