I need help with my acoustic guitar because it keeps buzzing , any tips to stop it forever ? and how to distinguish if this is a bad quality guitar or there is something need fix ? . The neck looks straight and the nut on the guitar also looks fine I'm confused.
There are several possible sources of buzzing on a guitar (or any stringed instrument). If you're good with tools and not afraid of ruining your guitar you could try to fix it yourself; otherwise take it to a qualified person. The most usual reasons for buzzing strings on a guitar are: one or more frets are too high or too low, which can be a problem either with the frets or the neck; the notches in the nut are too low or too wide at the acoustic end of the string; or the string is bad. Which strings buzz, played open or at what fret? It's possible to true the frets or correct the nut if you have the right tools and some experience, but if not, take it to an expert.
Ways to Fix the buzzing sound on your Guitar
Note: Any loose part on your guitar may buzz audibly, when certain notes are played.
- Say, suppose you knock on the body of the guitar and the buzz appears to come from the neck, then there’s probably something loose on the neck or headstock.
- If the noise or the buzz occurs only when you tap on the back, there’s probably a brace loose inside.
- When the guitar is a about 5-6 months old, tighten the nuts on the headstock as the wood compresses slowly with time.
Adjustment of the truss rod - Tightening the truss rod nut would be enough to keep it from coming unscrewed and allowing the washer to become loose and avoid the buzz as well.
