I recently bought an older PRS Santana SE model from around 04 I believe and it plays very well but the low E A and D strings buzz horribly. I tried adjusting the truss rod a bit in both directions, letting it sit a bit before trying it and it continued to buzz on the E,A and D strings no matter which way I adjusted the truss rod


I practice unplugged quite often and the buzzing is driving me crazy, its drowning out the notes so much that I can't tell what I am playing. I am using a light gauge and use the same light gauge on my les paul and it plays fine unplugged, no buzzing at all.

A guitar tech at guitar center said that all this buzz was natural "light string buzz" and I think he is blowing smoke up my ass, what do you guys think?

Uh did you try raising the action at the bridge?

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?

All the guitar techs I spoke with suggested that an adjustment with the truss rod would fix the problem and I shouldn't mess with the bridge.

It's the other way around for sure!!

Should there be a bit of buzz with light gauge on such a thin neck?

No, the guy knows jack squat.

My PRS has 9-42 on it and the action is so low, know one who is any kind of teck or guitar builder can see how it doesn't buzz at all, anywhere on the neck.

I sugest raising the bridge a little in the side it is buzzing.

Thanks for clearing that up

Looks like I won't be visiting that guitar center again.
