Truss rod or new axe?
« on: November 17, 2015, 12:27:08 AM »
Hello! I have an epiphone sg special model

I'm having a lot of fret buzzing. So I checked a few things out and found the neck has a bit of a bend. So I un screwed the truss rod cover and found no truss nut. So, should I look into buying one, or...new guitar all together, any other methods to get the buzzing to go away?

Why not take it to a guitar repairman for an assessment?

A couple of minutes with somebody who really knows what they are doing will tell you all you need to know.  A proper setup generally is generally cheap and can transform a poorly set up guitar.
If you say theory and practice don't agree you haven't applied enough theory.

Is it just the truss rod nut that is missing? That alone would obviously be an easy fix. If it is a more extensive problem, call a repairman.Try watching this video to get an idea of what might need to be done. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Dm_5GDHT2A&ab_channel=stewartmacdonald
