I just got an epi les paul as a gift and it is great. The finish is great and it sounds awesome. However the string tension seems loose and there is a lot of buzzing. Are there any ideas of what this could be and any possible fixes?
Higher string guage. Do you know what string guage your using at the moment?
try adjusting the bridge height and heavier strings for more tension
Sounds like you probably need some new strings. I have an epi les paul as well, and I have found that heavier gauge strings work better.
im using 9's at the moment. I dont want to go too heavy.
try 10's and if the buzzing is still there then bring it to like a GC or authorized knida place and get em' to check it (is this ur first guitar?)
