I was thinking that it could have been the same problem as i was having, the springs in my tremolo were buzzing but obviously since you have a Les Paul, this can't be the problem. it could be a loose connection in the lead going into your guitar, maybe try a different lead

The lead going from your guitar to your amp, the cable. although if its only on two strings it could be a problem with your pickups, how old is the guitar?

Try changing your strings. If they are dirty, or rusty, then they might ring or buzz.

well the guitar is like 5 months old and the strings are 2 weeks old so i doubt it would be any of those.

I went to Guitar Center yesterday to try out some new guitars. A lot of them buzzed a lot, a few only a little, and even less never buzzed at all. I have a very old Kramer guitar that buzzes a little. I don't have an amp yet so I don't know how it will sound through an amp.

well the thing is, i've brought it to the guitar shop twice already and told them it buzzed, they phoned me and told me it was good but they still buzzed, not as bad as before but still a slight buzz, which is just as annoying because it nibbles on you =[

also, it's not because i play to hard either!

want to learn. just try raising the strings a little. i know u said u adjusted the bridge, but unless the buzzing is across the board, thats usually all u need.



if u loosen the screw on top of the arrow. it will loosen the whole post and let u move the thumbwheel up a little. that will lift ur strings a little.


you do this to compensate for a high fret. (or two)
