Got my old Washburn set up best I could and sounding better. Next project.
Followed all of Ben`s vids on setup with Steve Huber on my 76 Iida I just bought. Sound is good, got new strings on, head set for tension. Action is set to what Steve said strings should be away from fret board. Find the playability to be good.
Here is the problem that I find weird. I have a buzz off the 1st string, but only on the upstroke, not down. It’s also not the metal pick as I’ve tried it with the plastic thumb pick and it does it as well. Buzz on the upstroke is there weather the string is open or fretted. ??? Don’t want to adjust rod anymore (for now) as it seems like it probably is something else.
Leaving the back off for now as I’m looking to put a new head and bridge on. Has a clear head on now and Grover bridge.
Also wondering if nut needs replacing as on my 3rd string, while in tune…open or 12th fret, when I fret the second fret, I get an A #. Sounds weird. Had same on washburn until I set it up. ???
