I just bought a Gibson Les Paul traditional lightburst and played it today without an amp to test out the string sound.

My G string, when ringing, makes an overly steely sound. My low E, when muted, gives a wah sound for some reason. These werent evident on my old guitar.

Is it just the new strings?

yeh, there's a couple of things you can do to sort it a little quicker.

one would be to tune them to sharp.

the other is to loosen them a little, then pull up on the strings (away from the fretboard) at around the 12th to 14th fret. not too much, but just pull until you feel adequate resistance.

i often actually do both, the 2nd option when putting new strings on, then tune it to sharp and leave it overnight, then play it the next day, and then tunet o standard and it's usually fine, if it makes ANY difference at all, i use ernie ball regular slinky's on my strat and dean markley nuno bettencourt hybrid 9/10's on my ibby

The G string is the only problem. Whenever I press the 13th fret now in standard tuning, the bridge pickup makes a wierd buzz noise. If I replace the string should it be gone?

When testing out individual frets for buzz, it's best to do that unplugged. Does it make that sound unplugged?
