    I have a very obvious buzzing when i play and the guys at the store arent sure what it is. He says its not the trust rod and the bridge is fine. i play the string open and it buzzes, i hold the first fret and it buzzes. anyone have a suggestion?

    Check the saddles on the bridge. Play each string one at a time, and when you pluck the string, press down on top of the saddle. If it goes away when you do this on a particular string, there you go.

    The nut? Raised fret? Warped neck? Maybe your strings are old? When your strings get old they get indentations at the fret positions from all of the accumulated pressure of playing.
