    AHHH! stupid G-String!

    Ok, when I pick the G-string it now not only buzzes on my stupid un-even frets, but it makes this 'plop' sound like you threw a stone into a pond. Sometimes it will also rattle the bridge. I've tried loosening and tightning the screw on the bridge and it still does it, any help?

    Electric problems
