Jag Bridge Buzz

Post by DJAwsum » Tue Jun 18, 2019 8:39 am

It's a common problem, I know, but...

My American Original Jag has buzzed from day one. It's been to the shop(twice) - and the buzz stopped for a bit. But now the buzz on the high-E is worse than ever. Are there any easy fixes I'm overlooking?

Or do I just need to suck it up and pull the trigger on a different bridge (Mustang, Staytrem, Mastery, etc.)?

Make sure all your height adjustment screws are even and all are contacting the bottom of the bridge plate. I’ve never had to give up on a Jaguar bridge FYI so don’t think you need to run for a new one.

(Longer/stiffer intonation springs can sometimes help too if you notice your high e string saddle is flopping around. I mean, longer/stiffer is always better right?)
King Buzzo: I love when people come up to me and say “Your guitar sound was better on Stoner Witch, when you used a Les Paul. “...I used a Fender Mustang reissue on that, dumbass!

Awesome advice. Thank you!
