I noticed some buzz when i play an open g string, dont have a tuner right now, but I was planing to change the strings in a week, can I still play for this week or can this cause any sort of damage to the guitar?
I noticed that the g string is the same string I have been bending a lot on thanks to the fade to black solo, so is there any relation?


Thanks for the help.

No problem, it'll only harm your tone.

I'd recommend getting hold of a tuner though. Or learning to tune by ear. You should be tuning up each time you play.

As for the strings, the life of the strings have so many varying factors. Stuff like how often you play, how hard you play, how much you sweat, whether or not you wipe them down after each session etc etc.

The general rule of thumb is that you'll get to know when your strings need changing, your ears will tell you.

fret buzz wont cause any damage, and its not caused by you bending that string.
its caused by either the neck being bowed or you action being too low. you could raise your action to stop it. i pretty sure on the RG321 you can adjust each string individualy, so just adjust teh tiny srews at the bridge.
go here to find out more http://www.projectguitar.com/tut/action.htm, although i wouldnt adjust your neck (or your bridge too much), in case you absolutely know what your doing

I'd suggest putting your new strings on before you make any adjustments to the action.

yeah true, but play them for a while to stretch them out first
