So my guitar is... most lovely. When I bought it, I kept it in a wide closet with lots of space. No problems.
However, the closet door in which the guitar was housed in always shaked and moved for no reason. I decided to ignore such paranormal phenomena.

So I buy a stand. Suddenly the closet door stops moving. I place the guitar on the stand. No problems. But one day I wake up to see that my guitar has HORRIBLE fret buzz and an unexplainable "rust" stain on a part of the finish. I don't want any genius telling me that wood doesn't rust. It also has an ominous whitish scratch on the back contour. The "rust" stain responds to light and becomes more clear as light hits it. It responds wildly to UV light. The finish is black.

This is NOT The Pit so please focus on the main issue of whether I need a guitar or whether I can fix this with a setup. The buzz was a very minor issue that had to do with improperly set up string retainers and was on a string or two. Now it is horrible and on all the strings and about 1/3 of the frets. Is this paranormal phenomena or is this because the guitar stand ruined my finish and/or neck?
It is a "Quiklok" stand.

yes a good setup should fix the fret buzz, and the rust should come off easily with wire wool.
keep you guitar down flat in a case or on a stand in a gig bag it should protect it better. seeing as your location is bahrain maybe you should look at getting a humidifier to help keep the humdity at a good level for your guitar

The rust is not on the bridge, knobs, pickups, tuners, or strings.

The rust is on the bloody finish!!!
Humidifier? Bahrain is ultra humid... humidifiers can also reduce humidity?

you're not gonna want to take a dump in a gross, off-colored, vintage toilet. you want something that is white and pearly; something that shines. something that you can put your cheeks against and say, "f*** yeah"

There are no paranormal specialists here...
I don't want to call a Sheikh because he will probably freak out about a a guitar in my room.

What if a demonic entity has attached itself to my guitar?

Well first off contact Ghostbusters. You'd be the first guitar player on the show. Then buy a hard shell case or AT LEAST a gig bag. They're worth it in the long run. Plus you can find some pretty cheap ones. Good luck.
Put this in your signature if you've ever saved a child.


Yea thats what i thought.

I have a gig bag...

I haven't slept in a time and I just ran up to my guitar and played it. Strangely, when the vibrato bar is tightened, fret buzz immediately fails, making guitar playable. I don't give much shit about the rust now. I think my guitar was attacked by the spirit of a dead vibrato over-user.

That's wicked. I would love it if my guitar was posessed. Hell, I would hope it would make me shred harder. As long as it didn't cause mischief i'd be fine. xD

Well a rusted finish sounds pretty otherworldly to me, along with ominous scratches and a cabinet that always shakes.
If you've had the guitar leaning against something, it could be that the neck is starting to bow, check the truss rod. That should fix the buzz.
What about when you plug it in, does it start playing on it's own, or does your hand get stuck to the fretboard and start shredding all over the place? Cause then it might just be that your guitar has been posessed.
