JS1200 Low E buzz...help!

Alright guys

Just bought my first JS1200 and have found that the low E buzzes when i play notes on frets 1-4. I dont remember this happening on other guitars, any ideas?

Cheers
Chris

Yep--just some slight adjustment needed--follow the guides at ibanezrules.com
Also, for technical issues--post them in the Tech section for proper exposure. If it's a pickup or wiring issue--post it in the Pickups and Wiring section.

Another great resource is the SEARCH feature. You can find answers to the very common issues, like yours, right in the search results. Be careful to not type in too many specifics, or you'll get a ton of unrelated threads. In this case, you'd type in "fret buzz," or "buzz" and see what you get.

Cheers for that. It's not the pickups its just the low e string touching the frets, but none of the other strings.

I know it's not the pickups--I was just letting you know about the 2 tech sections we have for questions like this. I'm sure you'll have it solved soon.

Umm, have you seen this neck? You must have, otherwise how could you really suggest he adjust the relief in his neck?
