On one of my fretted builds I’ve noticed that when I pick the high G string, and let it ring, I seem to be getting a harmonic sound as the initial note declines which is off putting. Any suggestions?
Hi, if it does not happen when you fret the string I would suspect the string slot in the nut. If it does happen when fretted I would suspect the saddle. Slots are best lower than the top of the string. Saddles that are flat on top can cause buzzing, as can a high fret.
Thanks for your response. I use threaded bolts for both nut and bridge. I suppose I could deepen the thread with a file. The string itself is wound.
Hi, try a plain string.
