I tried to adjust the action on my guitar, following the instructions given in the manual exactly however, I got a crazy buzzing sound. I then returned the action to what i thought was the factory height but the buzzing still happened. Then, I raised the action and the buzzing is still there....any ideas?

check ur truss rod. when u moved the action the tension on the neck most likely changed.

^^no, you don't have to take your neck off. there should be a truss rod nut on the headstock, probably under the cover.
how did you adjust your action in the first place, with truss rod or at the bridge? cause minor action adjustements should be done with raising/lowernig the bridge only.

bridge

would it also be possible for it to be anything like the earth wire to the bridge or anything like that?

1. dont touch the truss rod.
2. action adjust at the bridge only.
3. where is the buzzing? strings and what frets.
4. what type of guitar?
5. it would be the earth wire if we are talking about electrical buzz and not mechanical buzz.

Ibanez RG370DX, I'm not going anywhere near the truss rod. I adjusted at the bridge, then raised when I noticed buzzing, it sounds electrical and happens all the time even when strings are muted and grounded by me...

Edit: It isn't the amp or my pedal. I tested other amps & another pedal. Also is only noticable with distortion, but it's ludicrusly loud then.

^Then it's not fret buzz, your action was fine.


It could be a damaged/disconnected ground wire

Yeah, I've ruled out fret buzz, but I'm still worried as to why it's buzzing... it sounds like static, but it looks like the earth wire is connected

well, can be a loose inut jack or a bad cable causing humming.

if the guitar jack seems loose, dont hand tighten it. make sure u take off the plate to tighen the nut.

and if u already have hand tightened it, repost.

The jack is fine, i've inspected the electronics, but i can't get a good look due to the general mass of cables, but everything looks ok to me. The only thing i can think of is dodgy component, cos if i turn the TONE pot all the way down, the buzzing stops...

do you play infront of your pc or tv cause that causes some nasty buzz usually? and it would stop if you turn your tone pot because it reduces high pitched frequencies...
#15
nope, i've checked for anything that would interfere, and there's nothing. this is kinda starting to worry me now, as i've only had the guitar a couple of days...

Due to my apparent idoicy, I neglected that there could be a fault with the nice new cable that i bought, so panic over, no problem with guitar!
