    Hey dudes,

    I have my Lakland DJ4 strung with some LaBella flats. I had a setup done on it a while back with the new strings and every time I play the open A string there is a rattle at the bridge and the note sounds kind of dead. None of the other strings are this way though. Also, all the rest of the notes on the A string are fine. I tried troubleshooting by unwinding the string seeing if it was twisted or whatever else. Still no results. Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks in advance.



    This has been fixed. There was some grime or some sort of buildup between the string and the saddle.
