Ok. To put it short.. I have string buzzing. It is mainly the top E and A strings. The others are pretty buzzless, so to say. Anyway, the buzzing doesn't come through the amp, but it just annoys me sometimes when I am playing with low volume in my room, and I hear the buzz from the guitar. I don't know if it is a big issue since the pickups don't pick it up, but again, just annoys me. The guitar plays fine though.. I love the way it plays, so I have no problem there.

My question I guess would be... Does it even matter? Since pickups don't pick it up, and since it plays fine.. Is there any reason to try and fix it?

Raise the action...

I asked that same question once, and someone told me to raise the action... it helped.

Mattfm. bring it to a tech. I'm sure it's probably fret buzz and you just didn't raise the action enough. I hope it isn't the saddle. Threadstarter, raise the action like the other guy said. if you don't know how, bring it to a tech. That would be best since raising the action can also mess up intonation and you want that to stay perfect.

usually, if it doesnt go thru the amp. it's not considered a problem.
you can raise the action a bit. but that's going to raise all the strings, if its a TOM.
and that might be a bigger pain.

what type of guitar is it.?


and matt. u need to make ur own thread and say what type of guitar it is too.
or it gets too confusing. u might have a high fret. there are a couple of ways to fix that.

is that a saddle bridge, like this? if so, then u need to turn the two screws per saddle with a tiny allen wrench to adjust those strings.

Yeah it is. I am not going to personally change anything by myself. heh. I believe I might take it to a guitar shop to be set up sometime, depending on the price. I think the neck needs a little adjustment anyway. The lowE (6th) string seems a tad too close to the edge of the fretboard. There is less space between the string and the edge of the fretboard with the low E than with the High E.. making me believe that the neck might need adjusted, but I am not sure. For now, until I can get someone that can actually see and touch the guitar, I will just leave it at best. I thought that maybe it was ok for the strings to buzz (as long as the pickups didnt pick it up) on the electric.
