g string buzzing - it's not going away
After truss rod adjustments (each with action adjustments) I have deemed my Universe a lemon. There is a 'ringing' on the G string especially in 2-9 fret
range. Once you isolate that 'perfect' tone, you know you're going to sound that note and tsssssszzz, the note rings literally into my spine. I've tried very carefully tapping the frets long ago; nothing works. Even when
the action is set ridiculously high, this phenomenon does not resolve. A good test I use for just how horrible it can be is when I play the first 10 or so bars of the Willie the Pimp solo off Zappa's Hot Rat's album. The whammy is great, the inlays are great, it definitely looks beautiful and the setup possibilities are great but when I try to play it the g string zings. surely out of all the uv player out there some of you have seen this?
the best example of this zinging i can think of is on Vai's Flexable, 'Call It Sleep' - on clean tone portions you'll notice the ringing I'm experiencing. it seems helpless.
