    Silhouette BFR Strings buzzing quickly

    Hi Guys,

    as the title says, my BFR Silhouette Special buzzes pretty quickly although I recently made a tune-up at the best shop in town. I think maybe the nut is just slightly too far down? My guy didn't want to touch the nut so I'm asking what's the guy in Germany you would trust to have a look at the guitar?

    Thanks!
    Andreas

    How low did you have the action set? If it's really low, then buzzing is going to happen, unless you play with a very light touch.

    Check neck relief. if its too flat or backbowed you will rattle. And rattling is no big deal - most of the time it doesnt come thru the amp. if the notes are really being choked then you have more of an issue.

    I'm in Leipzig, but it wouldn't be a problem to ship once temperatures rise again.

    Sorry I donīt know anybody near there.
    As my Morse will need a refret somewhere in the future, I thought about the option to PLEK it at Thomann. But thatīs maybe a little big for just working on the nut or a minor setup issue.
