so i have a gisbon Sg standard ive had it for about 3 years. only recently did i encounter a problem. when bending the treble strings hard there is a little quick crack noise i was wondering if anyone that has one has had this happen to them? i wonder if its the trust rod? the strings? or maybe the action is too low?


thanks

it's probably the nut, if the strings catch in it they make a nasty sound like they're gonna snap or something. just lube it up or rub some graphite in there unless it's visibly worn.

I get this with my SG. It's getting caught either in the bridge saddles or nut. As suggested already, just put some lube or preferrably graphite in there.

in the nut??? it sounds like its either in the upper bridge or maybe the tuners the crack is deftnly at the end of the neck

Bridge or nut end, either way. It wasn't all the way through probably, and you just pulled it through. Not a serious issue, although lubing it would help as people have said.

As long as it is nothing coming from the neck itself, don't worry!!
I have a std. SG too and well, I recall having that cracking noise from time to time. I also had that in my old Epi SG. To me, it is like the strings were stucked for not playing often.
