"Maybe something to try- looking at the picture it looks like the plate is tight against the wood at the screws, but a little less so on the ends and in between. Makes sense as the screws hold it tight.  Anyway, if you can remove the plate and…"

License Plate Buzzing

Hi Folks,It's been a too damned long since I posted on here. I was wondering if you all knew any tricks for fixing the random buzzing that happens on a license plate guitar. I've tightened all of the screws down. My old trick was to put tape, or paper between the license plate and the wood, I even had duct tape on the bolt for a while, nothing seems to work.

On my normal budget I could record around 7 albums with that money. Thanks guys! If you…
