okay so its just the nut singular on a guitar but i couldn't resist.

anyway. my epi les paul is 2.5 years old and i am experiencing some buzz on the open low E.

i adjusted the truss rod but that didnt work...neither action problems.

i looked at the nut and the groove seems a little more worn on my low E than the other strings so might that be the problem?

i asked for this jokey stuff i know but yeh its sort of a rattling sound like when i do a hammer on or slide from the open string there is a definite rattle.

and when i play the note softly its not too bad but if i play it above average vigour or more it rattles

Mine does that to see it could possibly be the kind of guitar you got because i have a ibanez g10 and i played and ibanez grg down @ my local music store and it didnt do that.

Well of course your nuts will rattle if you put a hammer on them!

On a more serious note, I have no idea what your problem is nor am I thinking to figure it out but I just couldn't resist.

-yeah u can go to thicker gauge strings. they might not rattle in the cut.
-u can buy nut sauce or use a graphite pencil to lube the cut of the nut.
-u can lift the cut up a bit with a bit of paper wedged under the string in the cut.
-u can add a dab of white glue in the cut, sprinkled with baking soda, that will also raise the cut, u can then file it smooth with a toothpick tip wrapped wt sandpaper.
