fret buzz

  1. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    Hi, i got a new Prestige 652 w/o Tremolo, a lefty Version. The problem is, that from the beginning, it has a certain amount of fret buzz on the E+A strings, even when played open (in that case i have to hit the string pretty hard). The buzzing sets in when the string rings out (or reaches the...

    I got this gio as i was looking for hardware for a guitar build. This was perfect as the guy said the neck was warped beyond repair and he didn't want it anymore. Turns out i love the neck - the profile and reverse headstock have me in love. however there is a couple of deadspots and fret buzz...

    I went to a few local guitar shops looking to buy a decent acoustic, and while checking out a few I mentioned that i quite liked the look of the Euphoria acoustic, but it was too expensive. the shop owner went round a corner and pulled this baby out :) Because it had been in the shop for a...

    Problems with new Jem7VWH's I have been trying to get a Jem7VWH since the end of summer. I have ordered a total of six of them. Each one that I get has either a warped neck or a twisted neck. Most of them had a hump around were the neck meets the body and this causes major fret buzz on the...

    I am putting my Ibanez RGA121 up for sale. This one has the Vintage Violin finish. The only sign of wear is on the bridge from palm muting. This is an awesome guitar, but its not "the one" I am looking for. It doesnt have the fret buzz problem that I have heard about with some of these...

    Hello all, It would be of great help if you guys can help me out over this. I am using an RG370dxL with EdgeIII.. As i lower the bridge,the counter effective pull (for the whammy) gets shorter.. eg. cant pull off really high reverse pull offs.. I have tried adjusting the truss rod but i am not...

    WARNING: VERY bright and flashy As you all probably know, it is almost impossible to capture the true colour of a neon guitar. This is my best attempt. the picture below is probably the closest to the real colour scallops! yummy... Review (For those who are thinking about ordering...

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    After i set my guitar up to how i like it, the whammy bar seems pretty damn low. Do people bend the angles of there whammy bar? how far should the bar be from the pick gaurd?

    Ok I put 10's on my baby, got it down to an action I like. Im getting a bit of string buzz. Does everyone here who like low action have a little fret buzz?

    Hi, I am interested in buying a JEM, but I hear the setup from factory is not good.... That's prolly why many people recommend to buy from Rich (ibanezrules). Now I want to ask a few ;) : 1. Anyone here ordered from Rich and lives in Europe? (Please answer including a little review of...

    Everything is pretty damn good... I was not happy with the factory settings. Although the intonation is by far the best ive ever had. It came with 9's, Im going to stick some 10's on cause its to flimsy. Maybe even 11's. By just lowering the trem system, I was not able to get a action...

    I've been considering stringing my 770 with not even slinkys which is a 12-56 set. I've looked up some stuff and people are talking about modifying the nut to accomodate the larger size and that too heavy gauge warps the neck. I dont know how much is true but rest assured I'll get as much...

    What are some ways to increase sustain besides actually buying a sustainer (the Fernandes Sustainer has been discontinued as far as I know)? I know that higher gain also increases it but I wanted to know if you guys had any tips on making the notes last longer. Thanks.
