Hello all, I just finished my first build, and am quite happy with it.
I used a floating bridge, and definitely have a significant buzz from all three strings. If i press down on the bridge, or just behind it, the sound is very clean and pleasing. I slotted the bridge slightly, rather than leave the indentation from the tension, but to no avail.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
Hi Sam, can you post some pics of the guitar, buzzing can come from any number of areas. If the buzzing stops when you touch the top or bridge I suspect the problem may be top or bridge or even somewhere else.
I sanded down the bridge to sit at a slight angle leaning towards the tailpeice, which seems to have alleviated the buzzing, but snapped the middle string in all the loosening and re-tuning. We'll see what happens when the new string arrives.
Hi again, that's good that you remedied the problem. I was going to suggest that a lack of downward force on the bridge may have contributed to the buzzing, by not having enough break angle of the strings over the bridge.
