If your guitar buzzes when not plugged in… Beware of the wasps !

A Melbourne man brought a guitar to Living Music that had been left in a shed for years and was making a buzzing sound when played. Upon inspection, it was discovered that the source of the buzzing was an army of wasps that had made a nest inside the guitar. The guitar’s owner had inherited it from his brother, and wanted to fix it up.
