It’s always something... installed the tremelo block stop on the #fender #squier #stratocaster
so now the bridge sits nice and flat and won’t raise up, set the neck relief, and immediately noticed an open string buzz on the D string. I haven’t set the string action yet, which I already know is too high, meaning that the nut slot is cut too deep. I’m gonna try the super glue and baking soda trick to fill the slot, then re-cut it. If that doesn’t work... well, it’ll be 3/3 guitars in my workshop needing new nuts (giggle).
NOTE: This is exactly why you should never clip the extra string ends during a setup until you are 1000% done, so that if you ever have to take the strings back off, you’re not totally screwed trying to get them back on. *
