Last week my 620 was shipped ground during that heat wave we all had. The finish and all is fine, but my setup seems to have suffered. The low E is buzzing on the first fret which it did not do before.

Do I simply raise the bridge with the two screws or will that also throw out the intonation? Should I just pay and not try to solve this myself?

Thanks.

Dona't pay for it. You could raise the bridge a slight bit on that one side, and see if it solves the problem. You can then check the intonation using a tuner. A small increment in height really shouldn't affect intonation.

If you need help doing this, we could always get together. I'm right down the road from you in Duluth. Let me know.

Cool. I work in the Duluth/Norcross area. We should get together sometime anyway. Let me see what a tiny turn on that screw accomplishes.

Help me out here guys. I can't relieve this buzz off the first fret by raising the bridge. I was able to relieve it at first, but the bridge was so high the strings were flabby and sounded awful. Is it *shudder* truss rod time?

I have the same thing on my 360/12. Buzzing w/ the low E at about the 2nd fret or so.
Just been too busy and too lazy to correct it.
