    a while ago i realized that there was alot of buzz from the tone control. i toook off the strings and put it away for awhile. when i set it up again and started playing the buzz was all gone.

    the buzz came back.

    i took off the strings again.
    put it in storage for a few days.
    put the strongs back on.
    and guess what? all the buzz is gone. i love no buzz. no buzz = good.

    does anyone know the cause of this?

    Possibly a loose wire, cold solder joint, or a bad pot.

    I am moving this to Setup, since it is repair oriented.

    i checked all the wires. everything is really put together well. strong solder joints. yamaha does a nice job.
