I’ve started my bass journey with a brand new Jackson JS2 bass. Right out of the box I noticed a bad buzzing on the E string, which was actually worse when the string was fretted, regardless of which fret was used. Being a completely new player, I brought it to my local music store to get it setup. I got my bass back after a couple of days and put it aside as I was also waiting for my new amp to arrive, (thinking the buzzing wouldn’t be as noticable once I started using an amp). So I get my amp and the buzzing is still there.
I started the Bassbuzz course shortly after hoping that maybe it’s a technique issue. I’m up to Module 3 right now but still getting this buzz. It’s almost to the point that it makes me want to stop playing. I’m wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to which direction to go in to address this. It still has the original strings which I was told didn’t need to be replaced, and I assume the action was checked as that is why I brought it for the setup in the first place. When I measured the action myself it seemed to be at about 1/4 inch. I don’t mind making any changes myself as I plan on learning all I can on my journey.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
