    Hi all,
    There is a buzz from the bridge of my ml2. It is apparently a common issue in some tunomatic briges and since it is bothering me a bit, I am thinking of replacing it (unless somebody has a suggestion on how to get rid of the buzz).
    The buzz is definitely not fret buzz, the guitar was professionally setup, the buzz is not heard in the amplifier and definitely comes from the bridge.
    Anybody knows what model I can use for replacement?
    Thanks for your help!
    Best,
    Phil

    Does the buzz change when you palm mute? If so, then how?

    It could be that the string is not sitting in the slot correctly. This is common when a bridge has been slotted for 10s and you're using 12s. If it's sitting too high, either file it or hit the string lightly with a mallet.

    Are you sure it's not the string vibrating behind the bridge? Try some foam behind the bridge
