I have an annoying buzz on the G string. I have tried putting lead pencil in the nut and I have made sure that the string has 3-4 windings on the tuning peg - so far no difference.

Just wondering if any one has any other suggestions ? Maybe its time for my guitar (4 month old Gibson LP Standard) to go off to a luthier and get set up (ie frets levelled etc..)

Could be a bunch of stuff but check this hold down the fifth and 17th fret and see if it touching the 12 fret , it shouldnt.

where is it buzzing?

if it's rubbing a fret you can just raise the bridge a little.

you changed the strings, did you take all the strings off at once, or change string gauge?

Buzz on open G string and ona little on freeted G string.

Soon after I got the guitar I did play around with different gauges but have now settled on 10-46 (that gauge has been on now for about 2 months).

Generally when I change the strings I change one at a time.

Think I will take the guitar back into the store I got if from and get them to take another look (I did a few weeks ago and the told me to try the pencil in the nut).

yeah i mean that's a way to lube a string that rattles in the nut.

but it wont be cure. usually that means the nut cut is a little big for the string gauge.

10s are pretty standard. so that wouldnt be the problem. unless you went pretty thick before and cut into the nut a little.
