i need help

i may have broke my guitar

i recently changed the strings up two gages to .13 and then a few weeks after than lowered the TOM bridge to lower the aciton as the thicker strings were easier to play with a lower action

now the nut has started buzzing

and i mean really buzzing loud

any way to stop this?
also ma mam drapped it this morning.....mite that have done something?

Are you sure its the nut buzzing and not the frets? If you don't see a crack or chip in the nut, the only other thing that might be a factor is if the nut came unglued. Unless you are sure its the nut its more likely it needs a truss rod adjustment.

You cant JUST go up two gauges all of a sudden. You guitar needs to be set up for it, the gaps in the nut will be too small and you're after puttin alot more tension on the neck. I'd suggest taking it in to a shop, it'd really be worth your money and time!

is it a locking nut?


if not, is the string dug into the nut cut, causing it to sit too low, and buzzing off the first few frets, like said?

you can take a tiny peice of tissue and make a shim for the slot and
lay the string right on top of it when you tighten it back up.
that can help with open string buzzing...until u can get to a shop.

also really heavy gauge strings...should be used for dropped tunings..
you dont want to put that much tension on a string that strong..
most guitars are just not capable of supporting it...
