You'll have to ask yourself what changed with the string change.
are springs in the back cavity ringing out now?
do you need some dampening and lubrication at the nut, or back cavity?
is the bridge not floating like it used to?

maybe the tension on the neck shifted and some intonation or neck relief needs to be adjusted.

i would start by strumming and touching parts.
check for sympathetic resonance or "sitar-ing".

Thanks! I'll try listening forsympathetic resonance as you suggested. I've been having some warbling problems and phaser like sounds so it might have something to do with that. I've checked the intonation and it was ok, and the knife edges seem to be parallel with the body. I'll check the springs.
Thanks for answer!

you can raise that string if it's rubbing a fret.
you can intonate that string if it's not in tune.

how to do those things are explained in the first post of this thread.

In general should I have any bow in my neck to get low action? How much buzzing should I allow.

Hi guys . Need some help. I have a BC Rich Warlock . Yesterday I changed its strings , after that it started giving some nasty buzz above 7th fret on all strings.
To fix the problem I made some adjustments.

Here's what I did

I tighten the truss rod by half a turn .
Raised the bridge a little
Fixed the notation by loosening the saddle screws (on the lower side of the bridge) and then making adjustments as I tightened them

Now these adjustments took care of the excessive buzz . But there's still some left mostly in 4th string .

So what else I can do to fix this? ?

These guides always confuse me because I string a guitar completely differently and have had no resultant problems. I simple go around the peg a couple times or more, and then feed the end through the hole, and always so that it is underneath the winds as it comes out the other side. Tighten it up and cut it a few mm from the winds.

Anyone else do this?
