I have a Tele and im trying to adjust the action to where its comfortable for me. i prefer a low action but i can't seem to get this buzzing sound from the first few frets to go away
#2
if ur action seems really high, you might have a bit of a back bow to ur neck.

if u can get the neck a little more bent forward (like a banana) u will be able to clear those first few frets, while still lowering the action a bit at the bridge.

repost if u want to measure ur neck angle

HANG on .... let me explain how


edit: if its a backwards bend and u can see that clearly without measuring then use the correct size allen wrench and turn the truss rod 1/8" turn in a COUNTER clockwise direction, after u detune a bit.

then wait an hour. see how it settled. and if u need more bend then turn another 1/8" turn.
thats a very small amount.
dont force a turn, repost wt questions.

what exactly is the difference between the screws behind the bridge on the saddles and the little thing on the saddles that a tiny allen wrench goes into
#8


moves the saddle and the string up and down. raises and lowers action.

#2 makes the string longer and shorter, by moving the saddle closer and farther from the headstock.
you adjust this one when u want to intonate. thats adjusting ur tuning the length of the board.
your guitar can be in tune with an open string and still out of tune at the 12th.
