Hey everyone.

I just bought some new strings and while after putting on my low E string, I have vibration near the head of my guitar... I have no idea why. sad.gif

If I play the second fret it's completely gone. If I play the first I have a bit of it.

Anyone have any ideas?

Upon further investigation it looks like I may have just done a terrible job (loose). My first time stringing my own guitar. Gotta start somewhere I guess. dry.gif

Well the easiest solution appears to be simple, just raise the action on your guitar, also, what kind of bridge are you using? if its a double locking trem like Floyds and Ibanez's Edge Pro, that could be a whole different problem.

But for now, just try raising the action.

I tried raising it but that did not fix the problem.

However, my D string is making a different vibration problem... but I can clearly hear that it's not at the neck. Though, my B and E are fine, so I have nooo idea what is wrong.

I'm thinking maybe I'll just go to the guitar shop whenever I get around to it next and get them to teach me how to do this correctly.

I ended up snapping my low E string and both my E/D strings are vibrating.

how high are your pickups? its possible the buzz is the string touching a pickup thats a little too high.

Not close enough at all.

Plus the noise is from the top of the neck/pegs

I brought one of my guitar to the guitar shop for a simmilar problem

I had the same thing on the low e string. Whenever i picked the first fret i got a buzz. A guy at the repair shop showed it to me. When you fret the first string, The string action is so low that the string is also touching the second fret, Resulting in a nasty buzz. This might be the same problem you have. It's probably best solved bringing your guitar to the shop. Fixing my problem only costed me around 8 euro's

hope this helps


Good luck

Is the string resting comfortably in the gash?
Is the string tightly winded to the tuner?

If nothing else was changes it shouldn't be the action or anything. Put on a new E-string if nothing else helps and make sure is rest in the gash and is winded tightly.

Well, the last thing i can say is that when i has the same problem on my Ibanez except at the 18th to 24th frets, after raising the action and adjusting the bridge, it still was there, i bought a lighter gauge string, and it went away.

So maybe that will work
