    Help me out brothers!

    Both my 5220 and 5230 have bridge buzz. Though it doesn't affect the sound amplified, its freakin' annoying!

    I saw in YT before that you can use ballpen springs on the saddles and will try that, unless there's an easier and quicker way to fix it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a 5230. I had some slight buzz
    I took it in and had it set up and the buzzing stopped. Very happy with it now. It's a great guitar.
