    Maybe its me,but my G and L tribute has too much buzz on the fretboard.Its more than likely I pluck the strings too hard.I switched from roundwound strings to pressurewound and it helped very little.Do I need to make some adjustments?I did one along time ago.I remember raising the strings at the bottom,then had to readjust for intonation.Any tips apreciated :D

    I have to agree with Figjam, maybee you neck needs a fret or planning job.

    Having your strings too high will get you a false intonation no matter what you do because of the the pressure you have to put on the strings.
