Hi all..

Just want to thank you all for trying to help n throwing some opinions before hand...

Alright.. My Epi LP 100 has Buzz'ing sounds when i play around fret 3 (Low E string)

Thus, i tried to adjust The bridge posts and the truss rod.


At the moment, no Buzzing sounds caused by playing the guitar,
But i starting to realize that the gap between the stings and the neck, is kinda.. maybe i should say far (Or should i say "there is an action"?)
I've uploaded some actual photo of the guitar..

Please give me some opinions..


Thanks


Fret 1 - 5



Fret 5 - 9



Fret 9 - 15



Fret 15 - 22

you must have a crappy nut because that action is way too high to me anyways, id take it to a shop and see what they will say

ok first you'll want to measure the neck's relief.

fret the low E at the first fret and at the last fret, where the neck and body meet.

while held, look at the middle frets 7-9th.

can you fit a credit card in that gap?

let's check the middle relief first, then go from there.

also, remember, buzz that does not transmit thru the amp is generally not considered a problem.

well sometimes when a guitar has a few high frets,

you'll want extra relief, bend, at the middle. that extra room "might" allow you to lower the
bridge a little.
it all depends on how bad the fret work, and how low the nut cuts are.

but it should be worth a shot.

if you can maybe fit a medium sized pick in that gap? but not a credit card,
then feel free to turn the truss rod 1/8 turn Counter clockwise.

dont force the turn and let it settle in tune.

you can measure again, and after a while, see if you can lower the bridge at all
without getting so much buzz, that transmits thru the amp.

post back, after you adjust, and let me know what strings and what frets are still buzzing.
