On my second fret, 3rd string (from the thinnest), there is a huge amount of buzz and the note barely even rings, just makes almost a plink noise. Other than raising my bridge's action (which I won't do), what could I do to remedy this? The frets and the nut don't seem worn at all, so I doubt that's the problem, and the neck appears to be straight. :S It's extremely annoying though...should the truss rod be slightly loosened to allow a minimal dip in the neck?

well, u can slip a bit of paper under the string at the cut in the nut. if it stops the buzz, it means the cut is a little low.

if u adjust the neck, ull be adjusting all the strings in relation to the neck.

so check the nut cut. then repost.

sometimes a new string can help too. a kink can cause the same type of problem uve decribed.

if it's the first few frets, it's usually a combination of a fret that's a little high, and or a nut cut that's a little low, mixed in with a neck that's a little straight or back bowed.

usually u can do a combination of one or two things to get the buzzing to stop.


also keep in mind, newer players might have a harder time fretting Low E strings near the top.

I never thought of that, I'll be sure to do it when I change my strings. That'll be sure to raise the string enough to prevent it from buzzing.
