It depends what's causing it. It may be because your action is too low so the string hits the fret wire or it may be that your neck is bowing too much in which case a truss rod adjustment is in order. I will just say that with electric guitar it shouldn't matter too much if the buzz doesn't come out through your amplifier but before you go making adjustments seek the advice of a pro who can really tell you what's wrong.

Fret buzz over fret 10 commonly indicates that your action is too low for your guitar.Raise the bridge slightly until you don't hear the buzzing anymore. This explains how , in case you don't know.

Do not touch your truss rod.

Your neck has to bow just the slightest, and it probably does. Is it the squier? Don't worry about getting it repaired, just locate the strings that buzz and raise the action on them.

Oh, also, do you get any buzz on frets below twelve?

at about 10 or 11 on the low E string it starts to buzz a bit.

That's a pretty common thing on low-end guitars, I noticed. If the rest is alright, then, like I said, raise the action on the low E. You might also want to try to use a heavier gauge low E - it'll have more tension, and less buzz.

Bottom line: adjust your action and see how it is.

If its still buzzing, possible truss rod adjustment needed, dont mess with it unless you know exactly what youre doing. And if you take it in, itd be sweet if the fender guy let you watch so you could learn to do it for yourself.

Also, theres always a possibily that its your saddles, my friend has this old strat that he had played so much there were big notches in the saddles on a couple of strings and it caused buzzing...but that would be across the whole neck, so i doubt thats your problem

take a small allen wrench and tighten those two screws to rase up that saddle a little.
