: At the moment I have my bass set up how I like it, but when I use the 3rd fret on the E-string, it hits the next fret down and buzzes. Would it be ok to just file it down (just a little bit) to reduce or even stop it completly?

Yes it is fine to file the frets. However, it´s not something I would try yo do myself. If you're not qualified to perform repair jobs, save yourself several headaches and take your bass to a kwowledgeable repairperson.
Also, keep in mind that what causes your string to buzz might be the nut slot cut too deep. If this is your problem, post again and I'll give some valuable information I was recently given to cure this malady.
Buena suerte and keep that bass up front in the mix,
