Weird high pitch noise only on palm muted A-String
Well, I heard there are some experts around here, so I hope you guys can help me.
I have an Ibanez RG450AH from '99 here and since a few days I am encountering a high pitch noise when doing palm mutes on the open A-string.
I recorded a soundfile with this noise so you can have a listen. Since I am new here and not allowed to post a link yet, please take this url and write "dropbox.com" before. It's basically in my dropbox. Hope this works, otherwise send me a message and I will give you the link.
There is some kind of high frequency ringing noise going on. It appears ONLY on the open a-string when playing palm mutes. Nowhere else! If I play an A on the 5th on the E-string it's perfectly fine.
I tried a ton of things but none of them helped:
- Changing the Locking Nut
- Putting Foam around the Tremolo springs
- Putting Foam underneath the strings behind the nut
- Putting Foam underneath the Pickups!
- Raising the string action (the guitar is set-up well!!)
When tuning down the a-string a halfstep the noise is still there. So obviously it should be the Nut right? But no... I changed that too.
Looking forward to hear from you!
