Thread subject: STATII.COM: For all things Status-Graphite :: Neck Relief

Posted by lowregisterhead on 03-10-2019 22:39

Just bought a used KingBass MkII 5-string, which I'm really enjoying. It seems to have one issue, though - the action is quite good, however I’d like to get it a bit lower, but even with the truss rod fully slackened off, there’s still quite a bit of relief in the neck. Is there any other way to get the neck slightly flatter? If I lower the action, it buzzes quite badly above the 12th fret, so I was thinking about getting the frets leveled to compensate. Is that likely to help? Any advice gratefully received.
