I play bass in the worship band at church. I use a SX jazz bass clone. For about 5 years it has done the job, but lately, it has started a buzz that won't go away unless I put my hand or fingers over the strings. When I do that, the buzz stops. We tried a direct box, and it did nothing.
My director said to have it looked at and church would take care of it, but most repairs start at about $60, and the guitar is barely worth three times that.
So, should I get a new guitar or is there some easy fix? I am not Mr. Handy, but I can use a soldering gun.
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.
