Hey guys, I made a thread about this earlier but didnt get much help because people didnt know what kind of guitar I was talking about.

Anyways, I have a picture now of the guitar bridge.

Here's the story:
I changed my 10 guage strings to 9 guage for easier playability but now it's biting me in the ass. I had to raise the action considerably just to get decent sound but the buzz is still there. The action on my electric (ibanez sz720fm) is just as high as my acoustic and it makes playing a real pain.

Please, how can I fix this buzz without having to raise the bridge so much.

u positive it was fine with the 10's? I play with 11's and theyre as high as my acoustic, i just feel its comfortable to have all my guitars with the same action...if ur really uncomfortable, and dont want to take it to a pro to set it up, why dont you just move back to 10's? you'll get to the point where they feel very light

all strings buzz.... especially the thicker ones.... it just sounds like total crap. i dont like high action because i play solos and i lose alot of my speed the way it is now.

Simple, check your relief. is there any? there needs to be a small amount or lots of buzzing will occur.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

from the thread. do this then post here wt answer. i didnt say to adjust.

Neck Relief
adjusting your neck
this is not action adjustment. that's done at the bridge.
a neck adjustment usually helps, when a bridge adj can't get the strings low enough , or if you have fretbuzz that doesn't go away wt bridge adjustment.

please dont turn your truss rod without posting first. but here's a good way to see if you might need a neck adjustment.

with a balanced bridge...
fret the Low E on the first fret. at the same time,
fret the Low E on the last fret, where the neck and body meet.

with both places held, look at the middle frets, 7-9th

if the string lays on the fret wire there, you probably dont have enough neck bend.
if the string is more than a credit cards thickness up from the wire there, you probably have too much.
