I did add a little bit yesterday, but some arpeggios seemed a little too steep, so I changed it back. The buzz does not transfer through and is only very slight when it is there at all, so I think I will be fine.

ok, you can always have the starting fret worked on, go with a slightly heavier string at next change or try a slight lift at the bridge on that side.

i suggest swapping one string at a time when changing strings.

Don't worry, I have spent the past four years with acoustics, but what do you mean with "the starting fret worked on"? Do you mean I should shave the first fret down? Also, I would like to keep the super light 9 - 42 gauge if possible.

if the buzz starts at the 3rd fret then there might be a high fret there. a tech can look at.

and ok. I think you're just sensitive to acoustic buzz
because like me, you mostly play acoustics.

Like, does a medium pick fit under the string there?
or more?
Do you mean at the actual fret or in between them? At the fret there's not enough room, between the frets there is room.

Your string action is measured from the top of your fret to the bottom of your string. So you measure at the actual fret. Depending on your string gauge, the action should be higher. Add a little bit of relief and see what transcribes then.

between the string and the top of the fret.

if there is no room, you can add more relief.

VERY slightly, 1/6th of a turn should do it by the sound of things. Even though buying a Paul Reed Smith guitar, you should have enough money to take to a professional if you are really unsure, learning how to do everything yourself is crucial for your progress as a guitarist. No, I do not know why I decided to say that, please do not ask, I am sorry if there was any inconvenience caused by the above comment.

when guys come in here, it's so they can learn how to do simple adjustments.

so yes, a 1/4 turn counter clockwise turn is fine,
do not force the turn, tune up again after,
and measure and play it again, let me know how it plays,
