jimhndrx3 Posted February 21, 2006 Report Share Posted February 21, 2006 i just finished wiring up a project guitar of mine a 1966 tesico e-120 and i put all new electronics pickups and bridge in and i strung it up with ernie ball 9 gauge hybrid strings just to be safe because i wasnt sure how much the neck could hold. the problem is that the strings are too loose its like playing rubber bands. and they buzz like crazy... my idea to alleviate this would be to put higher gauge strings maybe 10's or 11's on and go from there. also in case this has any effect i had to shim the part of the neck pocket furthest away from the bridge to get the neck to go high enough for the strings to even vibrate. any ideas and or solutions on how to fix this would be great. its my first project guitar and i spet a good $250 to $300 on parts and i dont want to have to scrap this and i really like the neck so getting rid of it and putting on a new one is a last resort Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
