I just got my Les Paul back from being set up. It plays much, much better now, but it still buzzes (which is why I took it to get set up). Now, instead of just buzzing on one fret, it buzzes on all of them. I think it's because he set the action really low. Is it normal for it to buzz a little?

Some acoustic buzzing is normal, especially if you strum hard. If the buzzing isn't coming out your amp too then I wouldn't worry about it too much. Acoustic buzzing annoys me though, so I've got my action pretty high, you might want to think about raising yours a bit.

Yeah, it's only acoustic buzzing. It is annoying, but it's not that loud when my amp's on. I really like the low action though, so I guess I have to pick low action and buzzing or high action and no buzzing.

Edit: ^^^It wasn't too bad, because it plays and sounds like a completely different guitar (in the good way). I was just wondering if a little buzz is normal, especially with really low action.

if u have concerns, u should take it back and talk to the guy.

whenever picking up a guitar from service, always play it before leaving the shop.

like said, some acoustic buzzing is not usually considered a problem. but u shouldnt be able to hear it thru the amp.

The guy lives an hour and a half away, so I think I'm just gonna keep it how it is. It's not coming through the amp and it's not terribly annoying, so It's ok.

Haha, that's how I've been dealing with it, I just blast my amp until I can't hear the buzz anymore.
