Slight G-string buzz after tightening the pressure pad
I recently bought a used 7VSBL and thanks to Rich's instructions in his web site, I am close to setting it up perfectly for me (about 0.25 mm relief at 9th with 2mm action low-E side and about 1.8mm on the high-E, with a perfect trem angle).
Anyways, one small problem remains after all the tweaks. When I tighten the pressure pad on the D-G strings there is a slight buzz coming from the clean G string (no buzz when the pad is removed or at any other frets). I found that this situation can be remedied by tightening the pressure pad rotated 90 degrees. It is interesting that changing the position of the pads did not do any good, so I am pretty sure it is not the pad that is the problem.
Is tightening the pad this way going to have an adverse effect on the NUT in the long term? What do you think the root of the problem might be?
