Hey everyone, last year I just bought a new acoustic/electric and recently whenever I play the 6th and 5th strings i hear this odd buzzing/rattling noise. I'm pretty positive it's not in relation to anything along the neck of the guitar...it almost sounds as if the noise is comming from the tuners.

could this be? and if so....how can I fix it!?


any advice would be a ton of help...or if my description of the problem was to vauge i'd be happy to elaborate more

thanks!

Playing guitar and never playing for others is like studying medicine and never working in a clinic.
