How to fix a rx ten washburn electric guitar when it has a twang

It has a twang to it like one sounds when its got a cheap set of strings on it and i cant get it to sound clear and crisp and im just wondering what the problem may be.It started with the old strings,so I thought maybe it was something wrong with them,so i replaced them with new strings (d'addario) but it still does the same thing in any switch position and i have even tried playing with diffirent amps and it does the same.

Check to see if your strings are hitting your frets. check your nut and bridge to see if there high enough to clear frets our pick ups.

SOURCE: washburn guitar mg-20 pick up switch position 5

if everything is standard on that guitar then the only reason that pick up wouldnt work is because its a defective pick up or a wire is disconnected. it may also be possible that the selector switch is bad. take a small screw driver and tap the pick-ups in all positions while plugged in to the guitar amp and the volumes up ( not all the way) just loud enough that you can hear the tapping. you find the bad pick up when you cant hear the tapping with that pick up selected.

SOURCE: electric guitar pick up doesnt work?

se3veral things have to be ruled out, start with the cord that your using to your amp, is it good? next is the volume on both the guitar and amp also good, the last thing that should be wrong is the pickup itself unless a wire is broken off of it, you can usally check this from somewhere on the back of the guitar, if all the wires are good, check the two volume controls and on the back of the amp check the wires going to the speaker.

SOURCE: string peg required for washburn d10b

http://www.stevesmusiccenter.com/EZPeg.html

A new type of peg that makes it easier to change strings!

Either that or most guitar shops stock string pegs, Just ask at the counter .. .If they don't have them and can't get any in then they are not a real guitar shop in my opinion

SOURCE: after hour of playing the amp starts the effect popping sound

there is an open connection, most likely right off the input jack ,causing this issue. Resolder it or retension the jack connection.

D10sce will not work when plugged into the amp. the cord is nine ( works with my electric.) battery is new. when you turn up the volume on the controll, you can hear it in the amp, just no pick up sound.t


SUBSTITUTE Change the guitar for a friends to see if the amp is really OK. Try your guitar in a friends amp to see if the guitar is OK If the guitar is at fault its either the battery, the connection cord, the little pre amp in the guitar body (you can't fix that) or you have put nylon strings on the guitar which needs stell strings for the pickup to work. Good luck

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.

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.

What kind of strings are best for washburn X 10


the washburn X10 is an electric guitar.

first thing you you want to make sure of is that you ask for electric guitar strings

next consider what kind of music your are playing...

heavier music or really moody warm tones your going to want thicker strings

med to heavy guage

if you want clear crisp tones than go with lighter guage

light to med

lighter guages are also easier on the finger tips.

the sizes usually refer the the smallest string on the bottom or the first string.

9 is the light 10-11 is med 12 is heavy

you might also want to consider nylon coated strings

they last longer

have great tone

easy on the fnger tips

but they cost more
