I just got an Epiphone Les Paul Jr and I love it to bits, but there is very bad fret buzz on all of the strings if you play anything on the 1st, 2nd or 3rd fret. Anyone know how to fix this?

either that above or:
1, The nut might be to low for the strings that are on.
2, The frets might be starting to lift.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

Why would they? Unless he's soaked the fretboard, that doesn't happen very often. Especially not to LP juniors, which can't be that old as it's a relatively recent model.

it's going to do this because ur neck relaxed a bit. u can raise the bridge and if it doesnt help then repost and ill explain how to adjust the neck


loosen the screws at top of the bridge posts, that will loosen the thumb screws pointed to by red arrows. u raise those then tighten it all up again.

I was just stating what could be happening.

I have an Epi. LP from 1986-87 that had a fret starting to lift recently.

remember this is a les paul junior, different bridge/saddles.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Thanks a lot, now I will at last have a guitar with no complications. Which way shall I turn them (anti-clockwise I presume to higher it) and can I just use a screwdriver to turn it? (Man I sound like a noob for someone who has been playing for 5 years! )
