    There's probably a million similiar posts on here about this problem.. But it basically boils down to truss rod and bridge saddle adjustments.. Some fret leveling could be involved to, but not usually.. Have a good guitar tech set it up for ya =]

    If it is fret buzz, then it could be technique, or it could be a setup issue like infect posted about.

    What does the buzzing sound like?

    The buzz sounds like it hitting the frets...i am pretty sure it is not me. I was messin around with thingy where the string goes through at the bottom(what is that thing anyway?) and raised it up a whole bunch. That fixed the buzz. I guess ill take it to the music store and have em set it up. I broke a string anyway so i got to buy new ones.

    Yep, sounds like a setup issue.

    I meant no offense about the technique comment, I wasn't sure if you were maybe a beginner and hadn't built up hand strenght yet.
