Hey, on my acoustic, when I pluck the A and B strings, it makes a weird sort of screeching noise. It's not very loud, high pitch, and annoying, but doesn't happen all the time. Seems like it only happens when I hit it in the right direction, and hard enough, but that's how I play...

My A is a metal string, and my B is a nylon string... any ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

sounds like a little fret buzz there.

figure out which fret the string is rubbing and see if it's a little high or dented.

Okay, thanks. It does it when I'm plucking it open too, though.


fret buzz is fret buzz, regardless if you are playing an open string.
Did you change strings?
Do anything at all, or just started happening out of the blue?

can you tell what fret is rubbing?

you might want to click on the green link in my sig.

yeah it's for electric guitar setup.
but the first post explains how to measure the neck relief.

maybe see if you could use an adjustment, then post back here.

No, I can't tell which fret is rubbing, the first fret is the closest, but it doesn't look like it's rubbing.

Alright, thanks.
