Hello

I bought this Persuader 2 years ago in Thailand, brought it in Switzerland and now in Canada.

The day I bought it, it was stored in a very humid place and the fingerboard was looking like a rotten root (not kidding).

Now it looks fine but I think the neck has suffered. Is there a way to fix it?

I'm using this bass at this time and it sounds great but I can't lower the strings without having a buzz on the "D" fret on the G string side (I tune my basses since 1999).

And do you have any history for this bass?

Thank you :-)

Hey there, welcome to the club!

If you can try to post pics on the showcase section - there arent enough Persuaders hanging out there:-)

John.

Hi Alex,

Found the file for your bass. Besides the build record, there is no other ownership history for this instrument.

top: Walnut
body: Mahogany
through-body neck: 3-piece Maple, 32" medium scale
fingerboard: Ebony with pearloid inlays
pickups: Alembic PJZ
controls: 2 vol 1 filter, mono output
birthday: April 22, 1988
originally made for: KCM Thailand

If you have one fret that is causing a buzz, then it's likely limited to a fret being too high. From your description of the fingerboard, it sounds likely that a fret could be too high with the board swelled up from humidity.

Thank you for the information! I was just running through some old posts of mine and saw your reply (5 years later!).

So basically it was made for a Thai TV channel of some sort? Tried to google it but ended up watching some weird music videos...

Here are the last pictures I had from the bass before selling it to a private customer in May 2011.
