hello, i recently changed my strings to clean my guitar. after restringing my guitar i got a tremendous amount of buzzing on my big E string. i took it to my guitar teacher and he thoroughly examined guitar making adjustments to the saddle, pickups, ect. among running other tests. the end result we could not figure out what the source of the problem was.

if anyone has a theory im all ears...

action?


i don't think so, beacuse he adjusted all sorts of stuff including raising it to see.

i never thought it could be a bad set of stings, i will try restringing it tonight, if not ill prolly take it to a specialist.

i had that problem, i just raised the action and it fixed it, or maybe you need a lighter pair of strings, or they just might not be tight enough

You might need to adjust the neck. There is a special bolt in the head piece. It adjusts the curvature of the neck. I had the same problem, and that fixed it. Since you removed the strings the lack of tension might have messed up the neck.

you may be on to something, i had the guitar sitting without stings for a long time (over night and then some) while cleaning it. however if its the trus rod that you are referring to im a little scared to do it myself, if u don't know i have a Fender American Strat Plus from 1987 (1984 serial number) its my baby and i don't want to hurt it.

however that being said i would rather pay a pro to do it until i get a lil more comfortable with doing trus rod adjustments (i dont want a broken neck or a fret less guitar) in other words ive never done it before and i dont want this guitar to be the first victim.

You can get it fixed at guitar center for very little. Sometimes they don't even charge you, lol
They will show you how to do it for future repair also. Thats how i learned about that fix
