    As above.
    I got MM Stingray 4 with piezo, few years old. I like it much but one thing is annoying me. G string buzzes badly, especially when I hit her hard. Piezo Stingrays have different bridges, there are piezo saddles under strings, I dont know if that is what causes buzzing or something else. Good thing that its most audible when I play unplagged, hard to hear when plugged but this thing makes me pissed.
    Anybody had similar problem???

    Constant state of flux
    Sounds like a fret buzz to me, have you tried adjusting the height of the G saddle?

    you could try going to music-man.com and contact their customer service/support via email... they're usually pretty quick to provide a response and might be able to point you in the right direction...

    Its not a fret buzz. Its ringing voice coming from saddle under string G. When I touch the saddle with finger, its not buzzing. There is vibration in this saddle, which is heard especially when open string is hit.

    Indeed it was a saddle height. I raised it a bit and ringing/buzzing dissapeared.
    Thanks much,
