To me a string that buzzes open but not when fretted means the nut slot was cut too deep.

@Dru Edwards

How about this guy who uses a hose, bucket of soapy water and 20 minutes of scrubbing.

If the first fret is not high, absolutely. That's fixable in a few minutes with some dust from sanding bone and a drop of CA. I've done that on guitars I don't think are worth the time to carve a new nut for, and it's a solid, long lasting repair when done right.

Soak a neck in oil for 5 days? ROFLMAO! $144 bucks and he didn't even throw in a rust proof undercoating?

Ok sorry I had a laugh at your expense...

I think there is miscommunication. I can't imagine someone would still be in business who soaks guitars necks in oil for 5 days. In my experience a guitar that buzz's doesn't ever really settle in or rather settle out a buzz. You might get used to it but it will still be there more likely then not.

No freaking way did he do this. I taught lessons for a music store that actually had a decent tech, had Dan Erlewine do some work for me (refret on a '76 Stratocaster hardtail natural and replacing the poorly amateurish replaced neck block on my EA 260 Rivoli), and have never heard of someone doing this.

The only oil he's using is snake oil, and the only one getting soaked is you.

I don't know if Fender still does it, but they actually used to dip their necks in sealer (they called it Fullerplast) before finishing. I know early Charvel necks were dipped in something similar to TruOil and rubbed out. In both cases they did not leave them in for 5 days!

Other than that, I'd have to agree with everyone here that you didn't get what you paid for...

IIRC, Fullerplast was used on the bodies, not the necks, before painting the bodies.

Just an update for those wondering:

I brought it back and told the to fix the buzzing because that's what I originally came for. I didn't want to piss this guy off to bad but I made it pretty obvious that I was unhappy with the service and would not be a returning customer.

This guy is a total scam and didn't do half the things he claimed (obviously lol).

Please avoid this guy at all costs! Wild Dutch Guitar Repair in Ohio.

Thanks for the update, Oleg. Is your guitar now buzz free?

I can't believe you brought it back to him. Good luck.
