Long story short, My frets below the third are being fretted out on the third string, and when i adjust it so that is prevented, the action is frickin' outrageously high. I think it could be the fret, or also considering the fret. If it's the fret, I'm taking it to a pro, but if it's the nut, I could try to replace it.

Hypothetically, how would i fix the fret, which I'm almost positive is the problem? I put .10s on, and it had been set up for .09s. Also, I'm a dumbass and somehow managed to tune it to A (tuning UPWARDS) would that be the source of a problem? would i hammer it in, or need to buy a fret file.

Thx for looking, I'd like to save some money (even though i can get a great deal on this with my local tech.)

That sounds like a big part of your problem. It's amazing what a few millimeters can do. If you like your tens, just get a new nut. Otherwise, put nines back on and see if that solves your problem.

First, get the guitar tuned to E or I personally like to tune to Eb.

Then check the neck up-bow by sighting the neck from nut to the last fret.

You only want a small amount of up-bow or if possible make it straight if there's no buzzing on any frets by adjusting the truss rod. Tighten to straighten an up-bow and loosen to straighten a back-bow.

If there's still buzzing check the frets for pitting marks, if you can see'm the frets need to be replaced. If they look smooth with no wear then you might need a new nut.

Uh... is my post invisible on your computer or something?

Also, I suggest not screwing with the truss rod unless you really know what you're doing, as you can almost ruin your guitar.

Wow, I got the same problem. I just loosened the neck and it helped... I did replace the nut too, but it didn't really help though. My old nut sucked anyways, no loss =D

Too late, but I've messed with them before. I know about how it can break the neck, but i don't see that happening. I did see your post, Just want some more input. Not like I don't trust your idea:: it sounds great, But I just need to know.
