so i increased the gauge of my strings by one step (9s to 10s) and now i have fret buzz when i play on the b string and some on the high e string as well as some on the low e and g strings

now i know i can raise the bridge to float higher but i tried that and it got pretty high and still buzzed so now i don't know what to do (the neck has a slight bit of relief)
am i supposed to shim the nut or something?
plz help me

yeah
i turned it there but it didn't help and besides i don't like the idea of having a huge angle and a lot of space between the string and the fret higher up and then the distance dropping dramatically near the nut

there are probably grooves worn into the saddle, you'll have to figure out some way to smooth it out.

i was just checking.

if you want to adjust the truss rod, we can measure your neck's relief.

that's what's kind of annoying about Frs
u can't adjust the height of the individual string

even if i smooth out the saddle won't i still have to raise the bridge anyway?


im thinking of shimming the nut but im not sure

well can you fit a credit card in the middle relief gap, when you fret the first and last fret (where the neck and body meet) on the Low E?

that's a handy way to check for relief
ill do that but i don't think lowering the truss rod tension will be the right thing to do because it leaves a lot of height around the 12th fret and then the strings are closer near the ends of the fretboard


would i be able to shim the nut with aluminum foil? i heard something about doing that
the locking nut isn't glued or bolted on is it?
