What’s that Strange Buzzing Coming from My Guitar?

Guitarist finds a nest of wasps in his guitar…

As a guitar player we are all used to hear buzzing and other funny sounds that we are not always sure should actually be there, or even knowing where it come from, but in this case a guitar left on its own for a while, became a new home for a bunch of wasps.

How they actualy managed to get into the guitar and start making a little wasps home is quite peculiar, but never the less, this is exactly what happened…

WASP 3

You can read about it here below – and do share your story with us if you have tried anything unusual too…

“When a customer came into a music store complaining of a ‘buzzing’ sound coming from his guitar, the store person thought it was a fairly rudimentary question. Most guitarists will have at one point or another been driven insane by a buzzing sound coming from their amp or somewhere along the signal chain. Most won’t find the sound coming from a nest of wasps living in the body of the guitar. James Millane dealt with this very issue at Living Music in the Melbourne suburb of Greensborough not too long ago…

Firstly, tell me about what happened, walk me through this exchange.

The customer came into our store with his mother, they brought a guitar that belonged to his brother who had sadly passed away. The guitar was played extensively by the brother as he was a very keen guitarist, and since his passing it has had somewhat of a hard life being left in a shed for years. They felt it was time to breathe some new life into it and get it working again, but weren’t sure if it was too far gone. Their main complaint was when you tried to play it, there was a “buzzing rattle” sound coming from inside the guitar.”
