Nalo1022 Posted March 27, 2004 Report Share Posted March 27, 2004 i recently purchased a used ibanez rgt 42and its a great gutiar except for the fact that the bass strings buzz a bit at the top frets. i noticed that the nut was just slighlty back going towards the bass strings so i thought thaat might be contributing to theprobelm.the strings that where originally on there where 9s and i prefer 11s , but the 9s ddint buz too much cuz they were too small to be resting near the frets ...it seems to only be a problem with bigger strings.......i have temporally fized the problem by using a mixed set of gauges 10s fro bass strings 11s for the trebles and also on the bas strings i made a very small sheet of metal undert the nut slots(i melted solder in a lil rectagle shaped pan then cut it with an exacto knife to shape) now i know this cant be to reat for the over all tone of the guitar, so what i was thinking maybe i could get a really thin thin peice of brassor something and just make a sim for under the bride raising all the strings or do thaey even make floyd nuts that are a bit taller....i really dont need to raise it that much i mean something the thickness of a buisness card or 2 fixes it . now i know alot of ppl are gonna say adjust the action but simnce ou adjust it at the bridge and its the first fretsyou would have to adjsut it a bhit to get it right and then the strings will be alot higher near the last fretswich i dont want and i cnat adjust the truss rod cuz wen i first got it the neck had to be adjusted back a bit. so in usmmation how detrimental would a extremely thin peice of metal(or any other material) bew to the tone and /or do they make taller floyd nuts Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
