I play an american strat with a george lynch screamin demon in the bridge...i run it through a Peavey XXX head but thats not the problem because this evil sound happens on any amp...

Whenever i throw any gain/distortion/overdrive or crunch...any at all...each not is accompanied by this horrible tremelo sound with a buzzing.....the notes therefore sound like crap and dont ring out clearly.....

if you think you can help me plz do......state the obvious if you want ill try anything at this point

Well allow me to kill both your theories.........

I changed the strings and the tubes............

the buzz is still there.........

the guitar has been set up as well.......

i think the noise might be mechanical and is being picked up though the amp.........but at the same time i dont know because its happened on other guitars as well
#5
well i dont know that mine was a theory as much as a question.
But.....

if ur sure its not buzzing the frets and think it might be mechanical then unplug it and strum it hard. then shake it and use the trem.

are u getting noise?

if not then plug it in and use a different guitar cable. check and repost.

ok wait, ur saying that when its unplugged its making noise?

then u probably have ur strings set too low. and if u raise them the buzzing might stop.

Can you try checking your neck relief coz it may be your truss rod. Fret the 1st fret and 16th/17th (where the neck meets the body), see the 8th fretwire, there should be at least a clearance of 0.3-0.5mm roughly between the string and the fretwire, if the string is just laying on the fretboard, then you dont have any relief and if its more than 0.5mm you have too much neck relief. Then your truss rod needs to be adjusted. You can get more accurate reading by using a capo and feeler gauge but this is preference, dont need to be so exact.

Turn off all electrical appliaces in the room apart from your amp. Some pickups react with certain electrical appliances e.g monitors causing buzzes...
