Hey everyone, I got my Ibanez PGM301 a few months ago, and I've been putting up with the factory setup for a while now....

There is definately a buzz on the E and A lower frets (1-4ish) and its really starting to bug me more and more every day...

and the action isn't even really that low, which bugs me even more.

I KNOW Mr. Paul Gilbert probably has his action low and a perfect setup and everything, so I have no doubt its just the guitar. I just have no experience with this. and I don't wanna end up ruining my best guitar!

now to the point(finally)

how can I get rid of the buzz, and possibly lower the action in the process... I know its a lot to ask lol but I need help!!!!

remember this is the fixed bridge PGM, so forget tremelo stuff!


THANK YOU!

truss rod adjustment might do the trick, although i'd take it in to a shop if you're unfamiliar with a guitar setup

Yeah but if you spent $1300 on a guitar, don't you think it would be worth it to have it set up correctly?

I agree. if you want to take it on yourself, buy a good guide, like the Guitar Player Repair Guide (3rd addition)

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

One sure way of getting rid of fret buzz is posting photos of the guitar in this thread...

but do get it professionally set up. Definitely worth the money.
