I have a fender tele, and i just got it for the first time in a while.

Im not sure if its fret buzz, but when ever I strum, it sounds like the nut is vibrating or something up top is loose. Im pretty sure its fret buzz though.

I tried adjusting the neck (tightening and loosening) and it still sounds horrible.

Also, the nut is pretty messed up, my g string slips out if it is strummed hard enough. (no pun intended ), so that might be the problem.

I have no idea if its fret buzz or the nut...any ideas?
Does it occur when you play open notes aswell?
If it does it's not fret buzz.
Seems to be a nut problem then.
I would advice taking it to a professional and ask for an opinion.

Your Truss rod is a very important adjustment.
you could actually have a stripped truss rod
where it doesn't actually move the rod.

Examine your neck, is it straight?

you also may need to slot your nut to accommodate your strings

Thats all I can gather from your info
Ibanez AEL10E BLK- W/ Graph Tech Nut, Saddle and Pins
Duncan Woody XL Pickup w/ stock fishman EQ

Schecter C1+ Darksunburst w/ SH-4 (N) & SH-6 (B) 24.75"
Gain boost Switch
11-14-21w-38w-49w-60w D'Addario strings
ENGL Fireball+Savage+Vader Cab
The neck is pretty straight

I tried tightening and loosening the truss rod and the vibrating persists

How exactly do you slot the nut?
