I have bought a used Vintage v100 a few months ago, It was stringed with D'addario 9's when I bought it, I didnt have that much fret buzz then, and the action was pretty low as well (about 1.5mm) however I didnt play it that much so I didnt feel the need to re-string it, I restringed it with some cheap 10-46's yesterday, but all of the sudden I got a lot of fret buzz across the entire fret board, especially on the D string, I have gradually risen the bridge, and the action now reaches about 2.2-2.3mm but the problem did not go away, the fret buzz is still present across the fretboard, the neck is dead straight, I added a little bit of relief to see if that will help at all, but it made no difference, the frets are not worn at all as the guitar was never played too much. Have you got any suggestions guys?

The thicker strings are too close to the fretboard. You need to raise your action at the nut too, methinks.

Raise your action, but don't obsess over it if you're still getting buzz.

It's very hard to find an electric guitar which has absolutely no buzz (with playable action, that is). Some are more buzzy than others, other less - but as long as you can't hear it through your amp it matters not. Afterall, it's an ELECTRIC guitar. It's not meant to sound nice unplugged.

Some of the most expensive guitars I've played have had some fret buzz, including some of my own. It's just one of those things.

measure the neck's relief.

fret the 1st fret low E and at the same time, the last fret Low E,
where the neck and body meet.

with both places held, does the string still lay on the middle frets? 7-9th.

if so, you still need more relief.


and like said, buzz that does not transmit thru the amp is generally not considered a problem.

Well, I do not mind some buzz, but I can feel it if you know what i mean, when you play like a palm muted-e and u can just feel the buzzing, bloody annoying.

you can add a little relief if you want.

1/4 turn counter clockwise.
don't force the turn and
let it setting in tune.
