Alright, so I have a PRS SE and I noticed today that there was a considerable amount of buzzing coming from the headstock when I picked it up and played it unplugged.

Now, before anyone starts this, I would like to mention that I know that if the strings are too close to the frets, they will buzz, yada yada yada. This isn't that. This is something dealing with the tuning pegs or the bushings or something. I don't know, but I need to know how to fix this soon. My guitar shop charges a pretty penny for repairs, so I'm wondering if it's something I can fix myself..

Any ideas?

Try getting new tuning machines, if that doesnt work, maybe its your nut

So it's most likely my tuning pegs that I should replace?

I had that problem a while back, and it turned out that one of the hexes that bolted my peg onto the headstock had come loose somehow, and the washer seperating the nut and the wood started to rattle and buzz.

I'd start just by tightening all the nuts and bolts of the guitar- not to excess, just to make sure they're snug. Then tuning pegs. Maybe... Before I changed those, I'd take it to a pro. They'd probably do a lookover for free if they're good people.
