    Boy, talk about a coincidence. There's another y2stevo over at the Peavey forum, with a Wolfie, with a problem just like yours.
    (Nod, nod, wink, wink.)

    Open string buzzing could mean nut is too low. Shim it up with some tin foil. Took care of the problem for me. Grab Erlewine's "How to make you electric guitar play great." Lotta good info in there.

    I think it's time to find a good luthier.

    I'd also search the net for any similar problems and possible solutions.

    BTW, I really like the look of your AM archtop Wolfie and I hope it's an easy fix for you.

    Right i just realised that its as loose as it can possibly get, i just turned it another 1/8th and its basically completely loosend, it was free to move up and down the neck by simply pushing it, although it would only move a few mm as thasts all the clearance the torsion screew had..i turned it back about a 1/4 turn and it seems to be back snug..So i doesnt look like Loosening the truss rod will straighten the neck..

    any thoughts


    Cheers..

    I'm having a similar problem with my Wayne ... open B string is buzzing slightly.
    I just took it into the shop to have the fingboard oiled and get the buzz checked out. I know the neck relief is spot on, so it must be something to do with the locking nut or the bridge. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to troubleshoot: I have an album to complete and this would simply take too long.
