Hey everyone! So i just got my new AL-3125 in the mail and its amazing but I have fret buzz on the top E string and ive never really worked on a guitar before to fix problems like this so I figure this is a good place to start. Um I cant really tell you what the bridge is called. I know it has a stop tail piece but it looks pretty simple.

Just needs a good setup. Adjust the bridge, make sure the nut is cut for the strings you are using. Truss rod adjustment, Setting the radius. Each one of these effects the tone and can affect string buzz. If you haven't set opne up before check out videos on youtube, and read up op how to set one or just pay to have a good setup which runs around $50-75. You will see a big difference and the money is well spent.

(i've only been playing for about a year and a half). and how dose your new agile 3125 sound??? can it do creed, alter bridge, and trapt stuff really well????? Im thinking of investing in the same exact guitar but in the vintage sunburst version.

ok is the buzz transmitting thru the amp?

if not, then most techs don't consider that a problem, as these guitars are meant to be played thru an amp.

additionally, especially on the Low E you'll pick up a little buzz if you're not barring with perfect technique. something to think about.

ok, barring all that, if you'd still like to raise the bridge a little,
check out the set up thread, green post in my sig.

in the first post, it explains how to raise a TOM bridge. it's not hard to do at all.

also, i used youtube and stuff like that too. And remember, never adjust your truss rod unless you have someone experienced helping you or you just adjust it really slowly and watch what you are doing, ive heard you can damage your guitar dramatically by doing that so just watch what you are doing. What i did was tour it by like 1/8ths of a circle slowly, returned the guitar, and started playing. So i recommend trying to increase the bridge height buy a little and seeing that that would work.

no reason to talk about adjusting the rod.
