I recently took apart my Epiphone Les Paul electric guitar and then put it together again with some modifications. Long story short, the poor lady is now kind of breaking apart because of what I did to it.
One of the things I did was replace the nut, and I think I also gave a few turns to the trussrod. The problem now is, whenever I put my finger over a fret, regardless of the strength used, I can hear two sounds:
- The sound that the string is supposed to make, namely, the one between my finger and the bridge, and
- Another sound, usually higher-pitched, which comes from the vibration between the nut and my finger.
This is causing a ridiculous amount of noise, and it wasn't there before I changed the nut. I suspect it also has something to do with the trussrod, but I'm not entirely sure. I'd just like to know how to fix this.
