I was playing with my 67' SG yesterday and i noticed that when i play a fret i hear a slight buzz from the neck. It's not the fret because the buzz is not on every string on that fret. Open strings also create a buzz in the neck. I raised the height of the strings with the tune o matic bridge and it still buzzes. The guitar was re-fretted and has under 8 hours of play so it is very unlikely a fret problem.
Try adjusting the height of your pick-ups.
pickup height will not solve it. Adjust your intonation. If that doesn't work you may have to have the truss rob adjusted, which will affect the action of the whole guitar.
Actually, if your pickups are too close to the strings, they can cause a buzzing effect.
Well yeah, like millimeters from the string. If this were a bass, pickup height would be more of an issue.
What do you mean by the "intonation"? Ill look at the pickups as well
open strings create a buzz? the nut would be the problem. try to give it a proper set-up from a luthier or tech, or maybe do it yourself. if it still buzzes on open strings, get a new nut.
It's probably the truss rod, try loosening it a bit.
It's not the fret because the buzz is not on every string on that fret.
Don't be so sure about that. If you for instance use the B string on the 13th fret the most on your guitar(especially for bends) , that is were it'll wear. When you play the A string on the same fret it might not get buzz, because you haven't worn that part of the fret the most.
Hope that made sense.
Still the new frets have under 8 hours of play on them so there should be no issue involving frets
OK, I didn't realise they were new frets
The nut is your problem.
nuts the problem, or maybe your tuning heads are loose?
how would i go about replacing the nut?
