SOURCE: Both the E and A strings

The neck may require adjustment, but would recommend taking it to a luthier or using a guide like raeguitars to talk you through it. Depending where it is on the fretboard that buzzes, the nut may require replacement/adjustment. I've had all these problems in the past and the above tutorial helped me fix all of them.

Which are the best strings for Yamaha fg 300A guitar?


How do you play? Strummer, finger style or power chord.
Next question, how deep is your pocket?
I prefer Martin Acoustic 80/20 Bronze 12s but D'Addario EXPs are as good. If you are a light player try 11s and for a heavy player 13s.

High action martin java mahogany 00x1


To lower the action on an acoustic guitar:

Usually just the saddle needs reducing.

1. Remove strings (or you may be able to just loosen them). Remove saddle, sand down the bottom a little at a time. Restring and check action.

The action can be set as low as poss without any fret buzzing or note choking on all strings and on all frets.

2. Repeat 1

If the action remains too high then there are other techniques.

The D string on my new J-45 standard sounds unmusical , as if there are no rich overtones . I can tune the string with my electronic tuner but it never sounds musical. I think it has Gibson Premium...


Hi. Your guitar may not be intonated properly. You might want to try to level and balance the height and strings all throughout the neck. The level at the rear half (close to the soundhole) can be slightly higher than the front half (near the headstock). This can be done be adjusting the truss rod, nut and/or saddle.
Note: You may want to get a guitar luthier to do the trussrod, nut and saddle adjustments as these are very delicate procedures.

I've got Takamine JJ 325 My problem is backround noise - What can i do ?


Acoustic guitars pickup noise almost like a microphone. You have to prevent the sound from reaching the guitar or get a solid body guitar.

My new Takemine cannot be tuned as the strings are laying flat on the 15th fret and just buzz out


Take it back to the shop where you bought it and ask them to set it up properly for you. It's an expensive guitar it should be supplied correctly set up.

Strings are very far away from the last frets on the neck...


Sometimes the truss rod (nut you are referring to) will do the trick. The truss rod runs under the fingerboard and allows you to give the neck relief or tension. Some truss rods are dual action but I'm guessing yours is designed simply to give basic relief of the neck. I would make sure the truss rod is adjusted properly before sanding down the saddle. If you sight down the neck you should be able to see the relief in the neck - just use the string as your straight-edge. Most guitars need a slight amount of relief but higher-end guitars can be almost straight (better fretwork.) Once the neck has been adjusted correctly you can move forward with the setup.

Make sure the nut is also the proper height. If the nut is too low (1mm height between bottom of string and first fret) you should get it replaced by someone capable of doing such a thing. If the nut height is okay I would suggest moving forward cautiously by sanding the bottom of the saddle. Make sure this is done patiently and carefully as it can drastically change the sound and playability of the guitar. Hardly any material needs to be taken off to lower the action just a little. Error on the side of not-enough than too much. Make sure the bottom of the saddle remains flat! If the bottom isn't flat the guitar can sound horrible and if there is an undersaddle pickup it might not pick up evenly. The easiest way to do so is to tape some sandpaper rough side up on a flat surface (just don't pick something like mom's heirloom or something important in case it gets scratched.

Good Luck!
