Hey guys i got my new epiphone vintage g-400 yesterday and there is a little buzz not coming from the frets, but out of my amp. any ideas? btw the strings on it are pretty old since its new
More likely to be static from your lead than anything? Is it a cheap one?
my lead? what?
Long leads and in particular cheap ones can create a buzz when they reach the end of their lives.
what is a lead
Cable? The thing that connects your guitar to your amp?
o well u should have said so... ok so should i get a new cable then, this one is like 2 years old
Perhaps. I can't be sure without testing it myself. Try it with a mates cable.
its just buzzing on random notes, and when i turn the volume off, i hear no buzz coming from the fretboard
Could be worn frets then. Is the guitar brand new?
ya i just got it yesterday, but i mean i cant hear ne buzz coming from the frets, its all from the amp
I really don't know then. I would be able to find out in person but sadly that is not going to happen. Sorry man.
It could also be a problem with your amp. Is it mostly high notes that buzz or just random ones?
Does it buzz when you don't play notes? (with no sound suppressor plugged into the amp)
