"Thanks Taffy! Too shallow a break angle at the bridge. Just a thin slice of wood under it did the trick!"

"Can't seem to post a picture. Just let's me reply. There is no definite take off point from the bridge. No slots cut into it. So I'll cut the grooves in the bridge."

"Hi, photo would help, but check grooves in bridge for size. Do you have sufficient break angle over the bridge? Taff"

"I agree with Taff, it’s probably on the bridge or nut, may just need a little fine tuning of the string grooves. Tread lightly, it can get away from you real fast, depending on the material? Kind of hard to figure out without seeing it tho?"

"Hi again, I forgot to mention, that to stop the neck from tilting I would either remove wood from the high side to make the seating surface level or, shim the low side to achieve the same outcome. Let us know what you find. Taff"

"Hi, first I would check the strings contact at the bridge saddle to see if it is buzzing there. If it was buzzing at the nut it would go away when fretted. You could also shim the bridge under the offending string, to raise it off the fingerboard,…"

Ok. I have a string buzz on the low (thick) string when open and all the way up the neck. The other 2 strings are good and play clean when open and all the way up the neck. I noticed that when I look at the guitar along the length the neck tilts when I screw the neck to the box. My thinking here is that this is what is causing the one string buzz. I wanted to check on your thoughts before I take the guitar apart to check the neck. This is a 0 fret electric 3 string CBG. I used a jumbo fret for…See More
