  •  c shaped neck

    Hey Rick,
    I just purchased a Fender Antigua Stratocaster Japanese reissue. It has a C shaped neck. When I bend on the 12th fret and above I get alot of fret buzz, even to the point of deadening the string, Is there anything that can be done without ruining great action?

  • Ricks Answer to - c shaped neck

    Well Mike, the action is already ruined if it buzzes that bad. The truss rod needs to be loosened a little bit not too much. Be sure to take the string tension off the neck by loosening them first then loosen the rod a small amount.

    Retune the strings and reset the intonation and play it to see if the buzzing is gone. Keep doing the same proceedure unutil the buzz is gone. But watch the neck during these sessions of adjustment to be sure the neck does not warp in a curve downward in the midway of the neck making the string too high. Sometimes it becomes neccessary to dress down the frets to achieve the better playing action without buzzing.

    Cheaper guitars are a pain and usually can't be set up as good as expensive guitars. This is due to the fact of being volume cheaoly made and inferior woods used. it is reall well worth the money for high grade instruments but you can still make it play reasonable for what it is. Once you do get it right it usually will change in a fairly short time, again due to the cheaper woods used in manufacturing. This is why the better guitars are so expensive.
