: Hello, I have a Warwick Streamer and the sound is over powered by fret buzz and the b string is horrible. I tried the "fully adjustable bridge" and nothing seems to help. My truss rod is set right where it should be, i was just wondering if anybody could help me out with this. I know it isnt much to go by but any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks

I have a Thumb 5 that had the same problem. It turned out to that one of the frets had moved on the board. This is a common problem, I'm told by Dana B. Good, that has happened with the Wenge boards. They say that it can sometimes be very unstable hence the movement. Luckily mine was under warranty so they took care of it. So, if yours is less than a year old then send out to California, it will take about 3 weeks before you see it again. If not have your local tech look at the frets. Word of caution, alot of people will not work on this basses because of the brass frets. Apparently they're more expensive and harder to work with. Hope this helps and good luck.

Keep it on the down low,
