    Is the bridge overly worn around or under that string?

i agree with shiming the nut bridge, but if you ABSOLUTLEY have to adjust it: on the head stock exactly behind the nut bridge there should be a piece of plastic with 3 little srews. remove them and you should see a allen wrench head that is used to adjust the truss rod if you want to tighten, rotate allen head NO MORE THAN A QTR TURN to the right, make sure you let this set for at least 24-48 (preferably 48 so you can let the neck settle) hrs before adjusting another qtr turn if needed.

Guitar string buzz


What you need is a complete set up as your truss rod is out of adjustment and bridge is too low. Your local guitar shop can help you out for around $50.

Fret buzz only on E string. Adjusted truss and action, and still buzz. Some relief when I turn bass knob higher than the rest


This sounds like a worn nut groove. The string is sitting too low. Does the buzz happen all the way up the neck or just on open string?

Buzz at the e6 string 11th fret


Have you changed strings on it? Old strings get worn spots in them from rubbing on the frets that will cause these type of symptoms. If you put new strings on and get the same issue, check your neck relief (the amount of bow in the neck) to do this, hold your low E string at the first fret, and at the 12th or 14th fret. The neck should have a slight bow in the middle that puts it between 1/16" and 1/8" or so away from your string. If it does not have enough bow in it, you can adjust the truss rod. Most guitars use an allen wrench for this, it will be inside the soundhole on an acoustic usually, and on an electric it is normally on the headstock under a cover. There are many how-to's online about adjusting a truss rod, the key is to do it very slowly, only do about a 1/2 turn a day, retune, check it again the next day. Loosen the truss rod to put more neck relief, tighten to straighten the neck. If this still doesn't fix you up, let me know, and I'll tell you where to go from there.

Washburn guitar B and high E string sound real buzzy-tinny. am fretting it clean. It just started doing it. Any Help?


Probably time for string replacement !!! They do go bad...

Get a set and try the E string... if it fixes that one, change ALL the strings at one sitting, but do them one at a time and tune each as you go... this keeps the tension and minimizes the interaction when you do the final tuning.

New flying v, 3 strings make rattly sound near end


Are the strings hitting the frets and making a buzzing sound or is it actually coming from the bridge? Make sure the saddles on the bridge are secure. If the buzzing is caused by the fret then adjust the bridge height and/or truss rod. If the buzzing is coming from the bridge and cannot be cured it may be worth investing in an aftermarket bridge.

How do I fix the high action on the dot?


First, try lowering the bridge. Lower it as ow as you can without the strings buzzing excessively. Check the straightness of the neck. You can adjust the truss rod and put a very slight bow in the neck if low action results in too much string buzz in your case. The nut may also be too high but a simple bridge adjustment should do it.

Both the E and A strings of my Washburn acoustic guitar "BUZZ" even when lightly strummed. The guitar has "light" (.012 - .053) Phosphor Bronze strings.


Buzz usually translates to either inadequate fret clearance or poor quality strings or inadequate pressure holding strings against the fret.

The guitar DESERVES using high quality strings and I would look at the manufacturers recommended string weight or your music store should know what to use. The LIGHT strings MAY be your problem.

String buzzing


Dont give up on the neck. One tec you saw may not know what another that has had many years in the repair of gtrs knows !. But for the time being you can fix this your self. Find a alan wrench that came with your Gtr.thats your ntail pice. This is the bridge that each string cross,s over. Now slowly rase up the height of the string untill its high enough to stop the buzzing. Just half turns at a time. . All so if you keep the humitdy up near your gtr. it may correct its self, no **** just like magic. keep on playing DFD

I need to know how to adjust my truss bar on my washburn d10 to make the string action bigger


Actually you can do this by adding shims under the saddle to raise the action. Then use the truss rod to make the action uniform if necessary. I try to avoid making adjustments to the neck because it could lead to undesirable perminent alteration to the neck. If you do make adjustments to the truss rod you should tune the guitar to pitch and let it sit left alone overnight to allow the wood time to adjust to the new adjustments.

Here is a link to an article on Adjusting action on an Acoustic Guitar.
