The other day i played my friend's epiphone les paul which he just had set up professionally and it played great. the action was low, and there was only a tiny bit of fret buzz which is normal.
My epiphone les paul however has higher action and still has fret buzz on a lot of the frets.
What's the problem? its not the action..so is it the truss rod?

it's probably the trus rod, but it's a really delicate issue, you could easily ruin your guitar, that probably the reason why your friend got it professionaly adujusted

yeah i figured it was the truss rod
i've tried adjusting the truss rod before, but it didn't really help. some fret buzz went away but only a little bit.
Do you think i should go get a full set up from a pro or just get the truss rod adjusted?

You should prabobly just get it set up by a pro. When you adjust the truss rod (which you should have a pro do anyway, unless you know exactly what youre doing), you'll prabobly have to adjust the intonation and action a little bit to accommodate for it. Having it set up by a pro will make it play better overall.


Besides, it shouldnt cost more than about $60/70, and it might be a little hard to find a pro who will do it without charging full set-up price anyway.
