Buzzing string stoped with new strings.

    I bought an Epi. Thunderbird a few months back and the G string around the 2nd fret to the 5th fret would buzz. I didn't want to mess with the action or trust rod, so I left it as is. Well this past weekend I changed the strings. Well to my suprise it doesn't buzz anymore. :hyper:

    So my question to the experts would be why? What made it stop?

    Yea, changing strings would change the tension and thus the setup. You may have lucked into a good setup through your string change.

    I switched them with Ernie Ball Hybrid Slinky strings. I had the guy switch the .85 with an .80. So the strings were the same gauge. I loved the way it sounded before, but now I really love it.

    Im thinking for the string buzz going away might because I have more string wraps then what the origanal strings were.
    Im just happy that its gone and I didn't have to do any tweaking.
