Ok so I just put brand new strings on my MIM P-bass, and on the low E string there is a terrible buzz, but only when I play it open. I suspect that it has something to do with the nut, because it stops when I push the string down on the nut. Anyone had this happen before? I need a fix to this, I want to get back to playing .
But really, maybe some truss rod adjustment.
get a allen wrench and adjust the hight of your string on the bridge really simple
Did you adjust your string saddle? And have you got that buzz through your amp? Like when you play through it.
It could come down to a number of things. If it is an option I would take it to a Luthier or a Repair center. Theres no way its that big of a deal, and at least in Wyoming, just about anybody would fix that for free, espically if you bought some strings from them or something. You could make a mountain out of an ant hill if you start turning your truss rod. But on your own you could do what sexothemonkee said, but still be careful.
Thanks guys, I will get it checked out tomorrow.
Did you recently go down in string gauge?
