I have an Ibanez SZ720FM and I just can't seem to get the action low enough. I mean, I can get it low by adjusting the bridge, but the strings vibrate against other frets (the ones that I am not trying to fret). I tried tightening the truss rod slightly, but still no luck. I am using thin gauge strings -- D'Addario EXL120's. Help??

Um where is it buzzing? Close to the neck Pup or close to the Nut, because if its close to the nut you can nock out the nut, glue a very thin pleace of wood under there and glue the nut back on and it helps the buzzing without giving up low action.

Yeah, it's near the nut. It's typically just the first several frets of the heavier strings (D, A, low E) that buzz against other frets.

Well, destring your guitar. Then take the nut out, either pull or a soft wack with a hammer od screwdriver butt will get it out. Get a really thin peace ofwood, a feww peaces of paper put on top of eachother and pressed down is a good refrence. Glue that i nthe nut slot then put the nut over that.

^ hmm, i wouldnt do that.

measure ur neck angle.

fret the Low E at the first fret, at the same time,
fret the Low E at the 17th fret, about where the neck meets the body.

with both places held, look at the 7-8th frets.

if the string lays on the fretwire there, u dont have enough bend.
if the string is more than a credit cards thickness up from the wire there, u have too much gap.
measure and repost.

we can check that out, maybe a different gauge string is all u need.

The strings are no longer on the 7-8th fret, but it's less than a credit card width between the strings and the fret -- am I still OK? It sounds pretty good now...
