Buzz in open G - only on high E and A string (??)

Recommended Posts

The high E and A strings, when in open tuning, produce an 'overtone' or a tone that is incorrect and not present in the other strings...

 

I assume it's an issue with the piezo pickup.  Has anyone heard this?  What can I do?

I was getting ill-effects from the piezo pickups initially - not related to your open tuning issue.  It seemed to clear up with more frequent playing.  I wondered if there was corrosion on the string, or some mechanical interference or dust where the piezo element sits in its cradle (my term).  It was fairly easy to remove the string and the rear panel and gain access to the individual element. Proceed with caution of course!

A first simpler step would be replace the strings.
