Hi. My Adamas has just started to buzz big time. It’s not fret buzz and I have squeezed and probed all the obvious sources. I am about to remove all the electrics to eliminate that. I am hoping the Kaman bar is not at fault as there are no markers that could be removed to access it. Maybe a brace, but I have pressed them all in turn. I have tried everything else and I’m getting desperate. Any ideas or tests welcome.

A stethoscope (like they sell for working on cars even) comes in handy. It could be a brace under the top came loose.

Thanks for that. The stethoscope is an excellent idea. I used that once in my youth when looking for corona in an X-ray machine. My colleagues thought I had lost it. I also used it when balancing twin carbs on a Rover 75. Don’t know why I never thought of it.
The loose brace is a good possibility as I recently moved and was forced by circumstance to consign the Adamas to a mover with a plea to take care. Still, mebbe they dropped it.
Thanks again for the reply.
