Just a quick question... Weird fucking shit. I seem to get a lot of fret buzz on my A string, only on the one. I know the nut is absolutely fine, since no buzz on the open string and first three frets. Every other string is fine, just that bitch buzzes like hell... Not a string problem, the old ones did that too... Any solutions?

Those kinds of problems can be weird. I had this weird string buzz on my bass, G string. It didn't look like the bridge, it didn't look like the nut. Moved the string a bit to see if it was the bridge.

Well I was pretty confused, but it was actually one of the screws kind of loose on the neck pickup, which is really low, maybe even not really the screw because I didn't take the scratchplate off to see, but it could have been just the spring. Really don't know, but I raised the pickup not even high enough to see a difference, and the buzz is gone.

I seem to be unable to find any problems... gonna drop it off to a luthier to level my frets... Some of them badly need more than me with a sandpaper, but that still wouldn't explain why only the A string buzzes.

Well. installed a ring and a gretsch broad-tron pickup into it... Those pickups are really good, lots of mids and very clear even with tons of distortion. I wouldn't use bigger than 250K pots tho... They have just the nice amount of treble now. Some punky effects added in the background, because i think the guitar is finally getting that punky vibe i wanted from the start. Very Happy well... next step is making the body thinner to look legit from the audience. Very Happy

I am unfortunatelly not the best guitar player on earth :/ Being out with the band and the tour crew, even for how short of a while that was was one of the best moments of my life. They are all just wonderful people!

A small update on my side. Installed a pickguard from a MG-65 i got from ebay and got me propper switchcraft switches. The body got quite beat over time and it now has marks from me getting the gunked off clearcoat off. Kinda regret it, kinda don't. Tbh i was comparing it to the new Mex stangs, VM jazzmaster and a 1996 jag-stang today and i wouldn't exchange. The pickups it has right now are a Dimarzio PAF and a squier vm single coil under the cover. I'd say it sounds pretty good. Smile

This is pretty fucking cool. I got a Harley Benton stang recently and I'm going to replace the pickguard and get a control plate like you've got on yours (plus the usual pickup replacements and what not). Didn't realise there was a copy identical to the Harley Benton but with the more mustang headstock, but I kinda dig the Harley Benton one so it's cool.

Soo, umm i fucked around with this guitar once again. I use it as my jack of all trades thingy, but lately i just started to really dig the way my tele with a 52 pickup from Mr. Tůma sounded. So i got myself a twangbanger and I'm loving it so much. It really comes alive with fuzz and using the both pickups at once thingy is just amazing. The neck pickup is currently a duo-sonic bobbin with steel slugs and a massive ceramic magnet glued to the bottom.
