    How would i go about spot leveling a guitar where 2 high frets are next to each other? If i use a fret rocker on 11-12-13 it rocks but it also rocks 12-13-14. Im getting some buzz when fretting the 11th fret but lots of buzz when fretting 9 and 10. Making me think the 11th fret is the worst offender.

    Would i level the 11th fret first then reassess if it rocks on 12-13-14?

    It's tough to just level one fret and make it work. Suggest you spot level instead... like 3 or 4 frets in each direction from the middle of the offending area. The end result is usually a smoother playing instrument.

    Thanks for the suggestion! Ill probably end up doing it that way. Though i am still tempted to try leveling just the one fret first and if that fails ill do as you said.
