    Hey guys!

    I'll try to make this quick and somewhat understandable.

    Basically, I have a carvin 727 with the stock pickups and everytime I palm mute or just mute a note I get a weird ring/ bell noise afterwards. I thought it may have just been my patch with my axe fx so I tried out my other guitars and had no such issue.

    This is very frustrating because it makes it basically unplayable, especially for recording.

    Let me know what you think!

    try putting something over the strings behind the nut. chances are what you hear is sympathic resonance from your headstock.

    Does it have a tremolo?
    If you do, 99% chance it's the springs in the back that vibrate and cause overtones. You may need to stuff some foam in there or something to deaden the overtones. This is really common on any guitar with a trem.

    If not it might be the strings ringing behind the nut by the tuners, which can also be deadened by some foam or a hairband

    Not a trem, its a hardtail. I'll try putting something behind the nut though, thanks for the advice:agreed:

    Edit:Totally fixed my problem! Thanks!
