Hey guys, just restrung my lite ash tele with a set of 12-56 and the g string has lost all sustain. It buzzes too. Is it the nut, as ive just set it up and its still not going away. all the others are fine though

Ideas?

Probably need to set it up again. Are the strings a different size or brand than those before it?

When you change the gauge of the strings, you need to have thhe guitar set up accordingly, as this will happen.

You need it set up again. I'm not sure how different it is, but I needed to get my strat re-set up when I switched it from .10's to .09's, which I prefer for a 25.5 scale neck.

Best of luck fixing it.

Everything? Saddle intonation, string height, truss rod?
