I have an issue when playing on the higher frets which is the nasty buzzing sounds that you can hear when I play a note. Please excuse the playing on the video, I am recording acoustically so yu can hear the noise and am not trying to be melodic. That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it! To give some background to this noise: It is the picking hand that is causing it, It isn't fret buzz or a set up issue (was set up by Hugh Manson's team) It is more prevalent on the higher frets It is worse when plugged in, especially with a little (11 o'clock) gain. It's not string degradation as I have had a new set of strings on and it still happens. I know why it's happening, it is the pick coming into contact with a string that is already vibrating and it is the noise of the string vibrating against the pick as I go to play a second note. The problem is I have no idea how to stop it. It happens on my Les Paul as well, but I don't recall it happening on my Grestch G5420T when I had that (which I sold to get the Strat) I use a Jim Dunlop 1mm nylon pick, but I have also tried a celluloid, metal and wood one and all have the same result. I have tried using a .6mm pick and it is better but still there. I am wondering if the noise didn't occur on my 5420 because I had 11s on it and the Strat has 9s (the LP has 10s) but this is really clutching at straws. I have tried the pick as flat as possible, coming down at an angle rotating the pick and nothing. Still the same chuffing noise. In the video I play in the middle, closer to the neck and closer to the bridge. It is worse closer to the neck but the tone next to the bridge just isn't appealing. Can anyone help please?
