Got my old 99 sg out to play and its making a terrible buzzy rattley sound when i play the upper frets on the higher 3 strings. The neck is perfectly straight so i raised the tune-o-matic bridge a little and that made the problem worse. Lowered the tailpiece to get a little more tension and that had no effect. It sounds like fret buzz but it even does it on the very last fret. The sound is very metallic and it deadens the string fairly quickly and distorts the clear tone of the note. What could it be?
Nevermind. It was missing the sadle retainer wire and the saddles were vibrating. I made one out of a g string but it seems impossible to install without taking the bridge apart.
