Hey guys, First off let me say, I really enjoy this forum. I probably spend too much time on it (haha). Hey, so I picked up a 52 reissue (2006) this summer and I really, REALLY, like it. My only issue is that when I do whole step bends with my ring finger, bending up on the g string, I sometimes end up with my ring finger on top of the d string, and some noise comes through from that. I don't do it every time, but often enough that I'd like to see if something could be changed on the guitar to address it. I don't have this issue with any other guitars that I own so I suspect it's something to do with the vintage frets, neck, or action. I actually like the vintage frets quite a lot for chording, so I'd prefer not to change those if I don't have to. Could raising the action help? In case it's a clue I tuned the guitar down a half step for an upcoming gig, and I don't think I'm having the issue now. However, I don't really want to keep the guitar tuned a half step down all of the time. Sorry if this has been asked a million times. I've seen and read a lot about the 52 on this forum, but I don't recall seeing this exact issue explained. By the way, I have tried changing my left hand technique a little... I think if I were to 'ark' my finger more and push the g string down with the very tip of my finger (closer to the nail, compared to what I currently do) I might not have this issue, but it's hard to change how I do this (been playing for about 30 years). Thanks for the help.
