: My bass has started to make a strange buzzing noise.
: I'm sure that it's nothing to do with the truss rod or the bridge.
: It's worst when i'm playing around the tenth to seventeenth fret. You can hear it when it's not plugged into an amp, but when playing through an amp you can still hear the buzzing noise.
: Any suggestions as to what this might be?
I had something like that happen with one of my basses; it ended up being on the other end of the bass, the tuners. I was loose enough to cause the sound you are talking about. You would think with all the tension down at that end it wouldn't happen, but that's what it was. As soon as I tightened everything down, the buzz was gone. Peace.
