hey, i got a new guitar a couple weeks ago and its a little buzzy on the first fret of G and B strings, i think i need to adjust the action a little bit. i have a Gretsch Chorvette, a 2006. It has a bigsby Tremolo. Would i just need to tune the strings down, loosen the screws the lightest bit, and retune it? or are there more steps to this?

thanks

dont adjust the bridge
use a L wrench to adjust the Truss rod
hope that fixes the problem

DO NOT try to fix action with the truss rod. Just raise the bridge a little.

r u sure???


Yes. Just take a Phillips screwdriver and raise the treble side a touch. Truss rod is for straightening the neck, not for adjusting action.

Really, just the ones that need it. If you run into trouble, stop and bring it to a shop. Yeah, it costs money, but I'd hate to see a nice guitar get ruined.

Tuno o matic is great. Just unscrew the treble side screw a bit. This MAY throw off intonation a little, but shouldn't be too much.

how do you adjust intonation tho? also, the E rattles to (its been like that) can that also be loosened and fixed? only on open notes though.. thanks for all your help. the ones i was worried about are now fixed, but just if i need the intonation later (im not gonna try anything right now) how would i do it?

If the E (low E, I presume) rattles, see if very slightly raising the action would help.

As for intonation, there's been many threads on how to fix that. Don't worry, it's not hard on a tune o matic. Just takes a little time and patience.

Loosening.
