Need help, got bad stringbuzz.
Hi all, first post here on jemsite.
I'we got a Jem/RG550 hybrid that has acted up on me and i need some help.
The guitar is a perleguitars jem body with whizard 1 neck and trem from a RG550, other hardware is dimarzio. I had the neck modification from original Square to AANJ made by the best guitarworkshop in Sweden (guitartech Åke Björnstad, gitarrmakaren)
Thing is, the guitar was working brilliantly until a couple of days ago. I hadent played it for a couple of days and suddenly it had a bad stingbuzz on the low e and a strings.
Since the guitartech has a two months waitinglist i thought i do a resetup myself.
I relaxed the trussrod alltoghether, raised the action rediculesly high, put new strings on but i still have a bad buzz.
When looking at the guitar the neck have a substantial bow. If i press fret 1 and 24 on the low e-string there is slighly less than half a creditcard thickness clearance at fret 5.
There is a buzz on all of the neck, from fret 1 to 15 so it's not a high fret.
I'm out of ideas, any thoughs of whats wrong here?
