S5470 - quick dump on A (14th fret of G string)
Hello, I expose my problem:
Saturday I bought a new guitar: Ibanez S5470 TKS.
It 's just fantastic ... a sound that really do not think I could ever get, clean, distorted ... is always accurate ... not to mention the keyboard ... practically plays itself!
Yesterday, though, I balked at the attempt because of a quirk that, playing a few days ago, I noticed, but perhaps to a defendant Picking dirty. Well ...
THE penultimate octave of all A note die almost instantly. That is, playing the first chord to the key 5, the second string to the key 10, the third string to the key 14, the fourth to the button 19 and the fifth to the key 24, the note sounds good, but within a second fades in half artificial harmonic on and off.
Initially, having noted the key 14 of the third string, I thought of a small misalignment of the key 15 ° touched the rope. But no ... he does all the strings, and only on that note! I even tried to loosen or tighten the strings and the phenomenon moves forward or backward according to the weird (that is on the 13th or 15th fret). So it's definitely something related to that specific frequency.
I thought about a kind of resonance with the bridge ... but actually the resonance would amplify the sound or maybe it whistle, not certain damping so quickly!
What do you think could it be? Any owner of this guitar can check if he has this problem? Because in the store there was another model (the black leather) and I asked to try to verify that it was not a peculiarity of mine, but also showed the same defect.
I went to the store where there was a lutist, and, after verifying the general setup of the instrument (action, pickup height, etc.) advised me to try to change the strings, but he is doubtful about the success of the intervention . Nevertheless reassured me that I probably should move this feature over time.
Since I have to decide quickly on whether to replace the guitar with another model, I have some advice from you even on this last thing.
Thanks in advance
