Topic: Help w guitar issues
So here's the story, I took my guitar in to the shop back in Juneto have the action lowered. I didn't know if it needed it but if it made playing easier I'm was all for it. So, they told me it was pretty low already, but they would file the nut to make adjustments. Since then I've read conflicting stories about lower at the nut. I get her home and notice a little buzz on the low E, no big deal really. I get to learning new stuff in the next month or so that moves me up the neck. Now there is lots of buzzing on 2 or 3 strings. I change to a heavier gauge string having read that the increased tension could put some relief in the neck and eliminate buzzing. Bad idea, I didn't like the thicker strings and buzzing was still there. I take it back in Aug and have them look at it again. They say frets aren't level. he showed me and sure enough they weren't. Level frets, new bridge to raise action and get rid of buzzing, and restring. Ok, it's only been two weeks and it feels like a totally different guitar. For the worse I mean. Sounds tinny, same strings I've always used though. I have to push alot harder and really close to the fret so I get a clean sound. I used to not have to push hard at all and anywhere in the fret was fine. So now my progress with barre chords has fallen way back because I have to push harder now to fret a chord. Oh, forgot, it's an Ibanez PF4, just a standard acoustic nothing special.
I'm thinking about taking it to someone else to look at.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks for the help!
