    Hey guys, I have a Schecter Syn Custom-S and when I switch to the neck pickup or the middle, I get some buzzing which is noticeable. It doesn't happen on the bridge pickup. Any way I can solve this at home? Or should I take it to a luthier? Thank you all!

    It might need some minor adjustments, I don't know how to do it. It could be the screw where the neck connects to the body or some screws by the bridge. I don't remember the right words to search for, I've only tried it like 2 times. I think it's a simple task, just a little scary to do.

    If the buzzing doesn't happen on the bridge pickup it could be a pickup issue. Have you tried replacing the battery of the sustainiac?

    Hi theeeere!

    If there's no buzzing on your bridge pickup but there is on the neck pickup, it likely means your selector switch needs to get checked :) You may try to spray a dab of WD40 or any contact spray into the switch gap and flick it back & forth a few times, plug in your guitar and try again.

    Cheers! :rock-hand:
