Hi Sheldon, I have noticed a little buzzing on the G string of my PA on the first 3 frets. I checked humidity levels. During winter I kept it at 40 - 45 RH. I don't have a dehumidifier and with air conditioning it goes from 50 to 60 RH now. I have not seen it any higher than that. Is that enough of a change to cause a little swelling of the wood? I loosened the neck truss rod about 1/8 turn and that took care of it. Action is still nice and low. Before I moved the truss rod I did raise the bridge screws about 1/8" and that didn't help so I adjusted the truss rod. I guess I should adjust the truss rod first? Any comments would be appreciated. Is my Z3 getting close to production? Regards, David

Check out the setup thread for Dr. Wood's complete walk-through on how to get your bass adjusted. http://www.dingwallguitars.com/forum/vi ... .php?t=530 The Z3 jones, huh? Don't sweat it- it's well worth the wait. Mark

Thanks Mark. If something seems out of whack, check the bridge visually to see if any screws look like they've vibrated out of adjustment, but in almost 100% of the cases it will be a truss-rod adjustment that's needed (therefore the easy access slot). We're still a few runs away on the Z3, but I'll be starting the next run in a couple of days.
