A JEM 555 Problem...

Hey guys, I have a JEM555 and I have a minor problem with it and was wondering if anyone can help.

Basically the problem is, if I play a note, e.g. on the 12th fret of the high E, hold that note and then play a note on the B string while the E string note is still playing...you with me? Then the B string note sounds all fuzzy and...crap. I can't figure out why its doing it...maybe something to do with the pickups? I've tried it with both humbuckers and the single coil but the noise it makes is always the same.

Can anyone help me?

is it only when you play another note? or just particulary that B note that makes the fuzzy sound?

Sounds like a fret buzzing problem. Check tremolo height and neck bow.

Oh, and make sure you have fresh new strings too!
