Fret Buzz Issues

Hello, Jemsite!

I'm having trouble with my EGEN 8 year old guitar. It's really good in quality, but ever since I got it, it buzzes like crazy. I fixed it by myself, but then screwed the bridge trying to re-string it. I took it to the shop to be fixed, and even though they did the string adjustment, the buzzing got worse. I realized the action was too low, so now I fidgeted with the bridge action, and even though it's quite high, it's too damn low in the first 1-4 or 5 frets. I guess I have to adjust nut height, but how do you do that on an EGEN8/Edge III trem?

If any of you have other suggestions or questions, I'm willing to answer them!

Re: Fret Buzz Issues

buzzing on the top frets sounds like you need to loosen the truss rod.

try a quater turn anticlockwise and see if that helps.

Do you mean the screws below the strings at the nut?

Alright, I'll check that out...
