    It was a hell of a night!!
    The high winds did nit hit until 8:00-8:30, then all hell broke lose.
    Power went out at 9:00 on the dot.
    About 9:30 heard this God awful sound from out side
    Went out front only to find out the roof shingles were being ripped off the roof.
    They were asphalt missles and One just about took my head off.
    While I was out side, the huge magnolia tree was split down the middle just barely missing the corner of the house.
    The sound I heard was the asphalt shingles being ripped off the house.
    Went outside this morning about 7:00 am and found out close to 3/4 of the had been ripped off the house.
    Water damage inside the living room, dinning room and den.
    About 140 feet of chain loping fence down,.
    The house moved so much the front door will not open.
    Just about every one in this area has a carport.
    Mine took such a hit that is is leaning at about 15/20 % out of level.
    They say will will be with out power for weeks but damn I hope not that long
    Lovely Florida

    Prayers are with you brc , just hold on to your favorite guitar

    Thanks Hayden,
    I have my vintage and favorite guitars in very strong heavy safes.
    Of course if the house is destroyed, I am not sure if the safes would survive .
    Storm is not scheduled to come through here until late Sunday, early Monday and already the winds have started .

    I am " lucky" in the sense that I am up on a hill , actually the highest house in the area, so I am not too worried about flood waters coming in the house.
    But what I am concerned about are the high winds.
    I look down from my front door to the closest home about 300 yards away, so the front area of my house is exposed to the wind.
    I have a big magnolia tree in my front yard that I could possible lose to the wind.
    Have all the windows boarded up ( which took days ) , trees staked down, lawn furniture brought inside, and basically making sure every thing is brought inside.
    We have already been notified by the power company that we will lose power , which is a given , but I have a 10,000 watt generator so other than an inconvenience , I think we are good power wise.
    Dundee, the small city I am in, once power goes out we lose water also due to the pumps.
    So stocked up on water, drinks food and most importantly plenty of beer.
    This should be on hell of a ride.

    I moved to central Florida about 1 -1/2 years ago and love it other than the daily afternoon rain and damn hurricanes.
    We have been tracking the hurricane, and now the latest is we are dead in the center of its path.
    Been working our *** off the last 4 days getting ready for the big hit Sunday night.
    Store shelfs are getting emptied fast as they fill them up.
    Not looking forward to this one

    It may be.....
    pickup screws/springs, try turning them a small amount.
    Or bridge saddle screws, especially if you have a bridge with the retaining wire. Can drive you mad.
    Best wishes.

    I agree with both suggestions.
    I had a 1973 335 that the bridge saddles would drive me nuts.
    But both suggestions are where I would look ( if you are sure it's not fret buzz )
