yeah, i clicked two different clips.

the unplugged and the buzz mix. and all i heard both times is buzzing.

go to a local hardware store. pick up a little allen wrench.
bring the guitar if you dont know the size.
then you can always adjust strat bridges.

Ok. So you think it's definitely fret buzz or maybe a grounding issue?

But just to clarify, you can definitely hear something that's not right?

on both of those clips i hear buzz.

to me it sounds like fret buzz because the notes, especially on the acoustic clip, do not ring out. (FYI, sometimes technique can add similar noise)

the only way to know for sure is to do the quick reversible adjustment and see if the buzz lessens.

as for the possible Electrical issues you may or may not be having, that's something you're going to have to sort out
by swapping out cables and amps, to find the source of the issue.

sometimes when guys swap for higher output pickups, they start hearing background noise now amplified great through the new pups.
it might have been something always there in your rig or house, made more noticeable by the new pups
or
it could be sloppy soldering.

you know the shop, and will have to sort that out wt them.

I guess the technique issue would be if you weren't pressing down hard enough, or fretting the actual fret?

I don't think that's my issue. I've never noticed that before on any guitar and I don't get it on any others.

sorry double post, but here's a quick story.

ive been setting up my own guitars for many years, but hate messing with frets.

so when i couldn't get my martin buzz free to my ears, i looked all over town trying to find a luthier/tech who could sort out the problem.

apparently, fret buzz is preference, because i went to 3 shops before i found someone who could even hear the buzz.
he did a slight fret polish and i had my guitar back in a day.

anyway, not saying that's what's going on here.
but sometimes, you have to say that it's your preference, and
Not worry about looking like a Loon.

edit: also, technique might matter but only on a more poorly set up guitar.
