    Silhouette [and Special] owners: string action?

    I recently dove into Silhouette ownership, picking up a couple used Silhouette Special models. Try as I might, I can't get the action nearly as low as it is on my JPs without buzzing. I do my own setups, starting with fresh strings, adjust the truss rod so that there is just a hint or so of...

    Majesty fret buzz

    I purchased the Majesty back in June and I've been tweaking the action via truss rod adjustment in bridge height for some time now. I can't seem to obtain the same action that I have on my Ibanez prestige without fret buzz. I do admit that I try to obtain a pretty low action at .040 but it is...

    Musicman stingray 5 neck relief/higher action

    Hey folks. I'm lucky enough to own a fantastic 97 SR5 with a maple neck and ceramic pickup. It's a beast. Now, I've toyed around with multiple string heights and truss rod adjustments and bridge settings. I was always looking for that sweet spot for my kinda playing (pop/rock and I like to dig...

    Action on a Silhouette (and Silo Special)

    I’ve been playing the Silhouette line since the 90s. All those guitars that I’ve played have had a low action. Not super low but enough that it makes slide playing impossible without buzzing. I’m thinking of raising the action but am wondering if those particular models are best suited to...

    Help: Excessive fret buzz on B string

    Hello everyone. I own a MM Stingray 5 from 2018 (a HH configuration) and I face since day one a problem of excessive fret buzz, especially the low B string. I already showed my bass to a luthier who corrected the fret work which wasn't that perfect in the first place. I set up my instrument...

    Axis high action low E at first fret

    Greetings - I have a 2006 Axis. I just had it set up but the low E action is a hair too high. I was told it would be too much work to try to lower that string. I took it to another guitar shop and he agreed it was just a hair too high but not worth trying to lower that string because the treble...
