Do you hear the buzz when the notes are fretted and open strings? If so the bridge has to come up. Thee are two screws, one each side of the brige. Screw clockwise on the G E side making sure to loosen the locking nut first.

Nashville tele that has the g string sounds off when playing


if you have the adjustable bridge try moving it back a little bit. the g string is a heavy string and will tend to go sharp when you have the string height up a little. make small adjustments usually only one turn or half a turn at a time. take care to note your adjustments so you can always go back to where you started. turners are nice but the ear doesn't lie. if it sounds right it's right

Ive got a dean vedetta guitar with floyd rose pickup... every time i tune it, it goes off in a while... also my string levels are very high which makes it difficult to play... i dont have much knowledge...


Some tuners have a weird mode that one presses the button once and the tuner will pass the audio until it times out, then tuner and audio stop. Two presses kills audio while tuner works for a time period and then goes dead. A third press enables audio to pass for normal playing. These are confusing compared to other type built in tuners. If you have one of these read the CONFUSING instructions carefully...

I'm trying to wire passive pickups in my Schecter Tempest Hellraiser. The problem I'm having, is that there is no way to ground everything to the bridge. My pickups' wiring diagram (and my other guitars)...


If you have a metal bridge, then install a jumper from a convenient point to the rest of the grounds. These grounds help reduce hum pickup. If the guitar is working with no hum while using and handling it, don't sweat grounding the bridge... The purpose is REALLY to ground the strings which is where you will likely pick up hum when you touch them... you are an "antenna" picking up the noise from all the power lines, etc around you.

There is a noticeable ringing sound only when I strum any note on the E string , any other string sounds fine.


If the ringing only occurs with a specific range of notes it may be something rattling in the amp loose or speaker enclosure.
It could also be feedback occurring at certain frequencies - does the ringing stop if you turn the volume down a bit or stand in a different position in relation to the amp?
Could be a problem with your guitar? Maybe the pick up height needs adjusting in relation to the E string or is it the string buzzing against a fret - indicating a need for adjusting the bridge height or trussrod settings?

How to adjust the neck to make the strings nearer to the finger boards


Two ways I'm familiar with ::

1) adjust the bridge downward (I looked at the guitar on line -- couldn't tell if it has an adjustable bridge)

2) remove the cover above the nut (where the tuning keys are) -- use a wrench to turn the nut on the rod which runs thru the neck -- it doesn't take much turning of this nut to have a big effect


With either approach, the issue with adjusting the strings closer to the finger board is that too much adjustment will cause the strings to rattle on the frets.

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.

What size strings? and how to adjust pickups and bridge adjustments. can i find an owners manual online?


String gauge is a personal preference. I'll ask you this: what is your playing style? I see your picture and its a Jackson DK2M. One thing to remember is that the Floyd Rose usually needs adjusted with a different string gauge. With a Floyd, I recommend replacing one string at a time unless you are cleaning the neck with steel wool. If you are taking all the strings off at once and changing them all at once and not one after another, put a towel under the back end of the Floyd Rose so it does not tilt back and mar the finish. Jackson usually installs 9's on their guitars, but this is too light in my opinion.

The pickups...there is a screw on each end of the pickup to adjust the pickups up and down. Raiseing them will get you more output but more noise and feedback. Lowering them will get you a more mellow sound. I keep mine no less than 3/16 to 1/8" from the strings.

Bridge adjustment...Floyd Rose trems are tricky little animals. They have small allen screws to raise the saddles up and down. Raise the bridge just enough to keep the strings from buzzing excessively and as long as they don't make a buzzing sound thru you amp, its nothing to worry about.

Send me a message if you have any more questions. With a Floyd Rose, it would not hurt to go consult your favorite guitar shop or a friend with a Floyd equipt guitar to see them work on them.
