I recently got my hands on a custom made epiphone les paul and it seems to have some horrendous fret buzz at certain points at the neck on most strings, which i cant seem to resolve. There is no buzz when the strings are played open which is the odd part. Does anybody know what could be the problem, and how to solve it?
id raise the action a little bit see if that helps.
By that i presume your talking about the 'string height'? If so ive tryed that...
hmm might just be bunk? i dont know what to tell you. fret buzz happens when the strings viberate and hit the frets, hence fret buzz, raising the action usally helps. I have a les paul that gets some fret buzz after i put it back together from cleaning and i just raise the action a little bit untill it stops.
Bunk? Broken? I have the action raised to full on some :S The strings are pretty thick, I dont suppose that could has anything to do with it?
