Hello, hope this is the right subforum...

Anyways, a while ago ( that is going to be 2 weeks ) I have bought ESP V-II. Since the beginning, however, it had been making some sort of metallic cracking noise whenever I press any string at 1st fret. At first I thought that the strings were new and that sound would eventually disappear ( as it did with my other guitar) but now after two weeks, when strings aren't exactly new ( 26 hours of playing) they still produce this metallic cracking sound. It doesn't even produce normal sound unless I press too hard.

Any suggestions? I feel kind of lost at the moment. Thanks!

sounds like fret buzz.

have you tried adjusting it as all?

there's a floyd thread at the top of the page.

My guitar doesn't have Floyd Rose.

Edit: Disregard please, I looked at a wrong thread.

well it sounds like it just needs a setup. you can walk it back to the store and have them check the neck relief.

sorry i said floyd, i was just guessing and i couldnt be bothered looking up your guitar.

but there's also a set up thread for TOM style bridges right next to the floyd one,

you can click the green link in my sig to see it.

Yeeah, ESP do have 2 year long warranty. I don't really want to return it since so far this guitar is the best one I have played. I will take it to the shop tomorrow and consult there. Maybe it indeed needs some adjusting. Thanks!
