    Hi guys,

    I've recently changed my strings from 9s to 10s asked in getting this buzzing noise from my G string. It doesn't seem to be caused my the nut as when I fret it higher than the open string it will still buzz like this. I already had foam to reduce spring noise, but tried adding more it didn't seem to help. Any ideas ? I didn't have this noise previously.

    Thanks !

    The buzz sounds pretty metallic, so I'd check nothing is loose on your saddle. Maybe loosen the string to check? I'd also check your nut in case something there is causing it too. If none of that works it could be an action issue!
