Problem with the pickup sound on the 'g' string on my epiphone les paul standard

I know I have a problem with a cable from my guitar to my amp; however, all other strings play clearly on the guitar. Even when I switch to my rythm pickup, I'm not hearing the 'g' and all other strings play clearly.

I would think the pole pieces of the pickups need adjustment but not normal, IF the string isn't dead. Definitely, need to check the saddles and the nut.

Hi ! Must be a problem with either the nut or the g-saddle in the bridge of the guitar.
Good luck , Stefan from Sweden

What Epiphone model did I purchase?


Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

Cant get the buzz out of the high E string on my Epiphone les paul guitar


A buzz on one string is not due to a pickup fault. It's rather a too low string height at the nut or a string slot that is either too wide or has too deep of an angle towards the tuner. It could however be that you had the pickup too close to the high E string creating excessive string pull.

No sound on high e string


Have a look at this link:http://www.lespaulforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=1490000 A dead pickup would not affect just one string so it has to be an adjustment problem. Here is another link:http://www.mylespaul.com/forums/custom-shop/1910-pickup-adjustment-height-pole-pieces-comments-discussion.html

How do I tune my Les Paul Studio Guitar using the tune-o-matic.is there a method that I can get instructions for?


Here is a link to their standard manual:http://www.epiphone.com/images/EpiOwnrsManul.pdf Pay attention to Intonation and Saddle Adjustment for a Tune-O-matic bridge. They come adjusted but you may have to adjust if you change the guage of your strings.

Les paul making wierd noises


Unless you are wanting to use the Nanomag, I'd just get it taken out of the signal. You should be able to bypass it anyways.

Amplifier is buzzing when i plug in my les paul but ok with other


Several things to try:
- Probably already have, but another guitar cord.
- Ground switch on the amp?
- I had an older guitar that buzzed due to the pickups. While touching the strings, all was well - I was acting as the ground then. The ground wire broke, so it buzzed no matter what. The ground wire ran to the metal bridge.
- Play louder than the buzz! :)

Which string used for epiphone gibson lea paul special II guitar


This is really a personal choice as long as the strings are made for an electric guitar there are hundreds of different kinds, it mostly has to do with the thickness of the strings and how the thinner the string the easier it is to manulipulate, you should go to a good music store and tell them what type of music you play and they will give you some choices.
