Well, after several emails without a response I must ask you guys to help me here. #I sent my Bush off for a varnish finish and I love the results, except for the fact that the open D and A strings buzz terribly when hit open or fretted. #The truss rod and neck is set perfectly and this mando didn't do this before I sent it to Gibson; I also emailed Danny Roberts twice about it and have still gotten no response so I will ask you experienced luthiers about what I should do besides sending it back to Gibson (which I will not do). #Also, if you tune every other string down and get the harmonics correct on the G and E strings, the D is almost right and the A is flat as H&*# (the rest of the strings note perfectly). #I think the saddle is cut wrong and I am going to re-cut a new one tomorrow (actually today) and see if this helps. #Mind you that this is a replacement that Charlie sent me a couple of years ago. #Again, the base is not even close to being fitted correctly to the top and again, I guess I will do this myself. #Someone please give me advice on how to get rid of the buzz! #It does pi&& me off because I want sound (which it does have except for the buzzes) and not a pretty mando (which it also very much has). #Thanks for any help.
If F-model mandolins have F-holes then why don't A-model mandolins have A-holes???
