my low e and a strings ring slightly when i'm play on the higher strings. this is obviously annoying when playing to hear extra sound, but it complete ruins the sound of distortion when i play on the high strings because they aren't crisp due to the vibrations of the lower strings.

this happened on my first guitar, i got an ibanez RGA121 prestige now, got it professionally set up(it buzzes still, wtf?) and the lower strings still ring when not touched. how can this be fixed? i'm taking it back to the shop tomorrow to fix the buzzing and ask about it. anyone else have this problem?

well you are going to have to mute the strings that you aren't playing
especially with a lot of distortion

define ringing. buzzing? notes sounding? or humming? check to see if its a bridge ground problem.

how high are your pickups and how much gain are you using

get a cheap marshall... my MG15DFX has a button that simulates the sound of one of the expensive tube marshall amps.
do you have a good amp? it could just be a crappy amp, or your gain is too high

with your palm.
and maybe since both your guitars have done it, maybe it's not them, it's you.

a good bit of gain, but it happens when i'm on clean channel too, with no gain.

bridge ground problem? what' that?

btw, i didn't notice this when i bought it, but the bridge seems to have a little tarnish on it, can that effect the strings? it's black and a little rougher than the silver parts...
+1 on muting the low E & A strings with the base of your thumb/side of your palm while you play other strings. If I understood you correctly, I don't think this is a problem with your guitar.
