My guitar is an old Yammie FG 160-1 and I love this guitar. It sounds great, it plays great, I have no complaints about it whatsoever. But recently for the past few months I have been getting a buzzing sound from the bridge area. I quickly referred to the buzz diagnosis page but no luck. So I decided to post it on here in hopes of finding an answer to this unique problem. I had also brought it to a local luthier but it boggled his mind although he didn't seem too knowledgeable to begin with.
The buzzing occurs when I play an A weather it be open or fretted on the low E. It also occurs when I play the open G string. Even if I put a capo on I still get the buzz so Im thinking its not a nut problem. Heres the catch that I hope will find me a resolution: If I remove the high e string the buzzing completely stops. Again it is not when I am play the High E string but if I remove it the buzz disappears.
What I did try thus far:
Immediately I changed the strings = Didn't solve it
Figured it was a tension problem , So I changed the saddle and raised the action= didn't solve it
I tightened the machine heads to the headstock= didn't solve it
I have rapped on the body but nothing is loose on the body like I say its only when the High e is installed that I get a buzz.
Checked for loose or misplaced string ball and changed the strings again= didn't solve
Rapped on the neck also for a loose truss = didn't solve
If anyone has any suggestions or advice to give I would greatly appreciate it
If you need me to take pictures and post them I can do that also
Thank You and Happy Playing to You All!
