    ok,.. am facing a problem,... wen i strumm or pick on my guitar's first 2 strings. (The lower most) I get a strong buzzing sound. And wen i touch my pick gaurd, the buzz stops, also i can feel the pick gaurd vibrating at the same time.

    So,... is it the pick guard which is making a problem??
    Shd I thighten the screws on the pick gaurd as much as i can???

    Any help would be appreciated!

    buzzz would come from the strings being too low ... or the neck getting distorted so that the frets are quite high ... which will cause buzz ...

    try to raise the bridge ... if the buzz persists then there might be prob with the bridge ... or the board ...

    strange!! .. the buzzing can be a problem with les paul style pickguards .. (held with screws) but the guards on accoustics are glued on .. hey cant buzz or rattle, must be soemthing else ... see if the tuning pegs are lose, or the tuning posts ... could be fret buzz as well ...

    YEs,.... the pick gaurd was a liiiiiiiiiil loose,... but it did create a reasonable amount of buzz wen the lower strings were striked. So,.. tightened the screws,.. n now its back to its spectacular self. :)
