Ok folks, My bass guitar sounded just fine. Everything clean and clear all over the neck.
About an hour ago, ALL OF THE SUDDEN, the 'A' string started buzzing. It buzzes
open, and it buzzes everywhere else up and down the neck. It's pretty trashy sounding.
It almost sounds as if it were plugged into a distortion box. I've checked everything
I can think of, the nut, the bridge, checked for loose screws and other hardware, and I just
can't figure it out. And yes, it buzzes 'unplugged', but the other strings sound perfect
and solid. So, question! Could it be that the string went bad. I've played guitars for
about 20 years or so and I've never ran into a problem like this. It sounds like a bad
fret buzz, but the best I can tell, it's not a fret problem. I'm going to change strings
regardless, just wondering if anyone has any experience in this subject.
Any other ideas????? I also took the string off,, looked it over and cannot see or feel
any problems.

Jimmy
