I bought myself a new Ibanez GSR200SM Bout a month ago and I’ve been playing it for at least 10 mins a day usually more.
I’ve noticed that the strings seem to make a lot more noise when I’m fretting notes and releasing my fingers often a squek or a pop etc…
Also, I’ve noticed that the E string will vibrate quite a bit when playing notes on the G string, so I’m getting a pretty annoying hum, I’ve double checked that I’m not hitting or catching the E.
I know technique has a big part to play and as a relative beginner it ain’t gonna be great, it just seems more so with this particular guitar
All in all the guitar sounds a lot more “clanky” and noisy than my other Harley Benton P-bass, that I put Rotosounds on. Could that make a difference ? Is it a good idea to get rid of factory strings and put something decent on ?
I know I could probably do with a pro setup, but I’m.notnreally struggling with the action, and I’m not really sure that it needs adjusting anyway.
Any advice or suggestions would be great as I really do like the guitar and the tone.
