well just raise the action on your guitar to take care of string buzz...not familiar with the guitar so i dont know what kinda bridge u have..so do some research to find out how to raise the action if u dont know how...

also about the heavy gauge strings....u will have to change the nut to accomodate for the thicker strings
i need a bishop preaching fire to get away with my sins...i despise everything i see so i dont give a fuck if ya HATE ME!

the nut is the thing by the head of your guitar that your strings run through...no the neck thru doesnt help...lol

If you have the money go get it set up by a trained professional. I would hate for you to accidentaly mess up your guitar.

get a little allen wrench and lower the two pegs on the front face of each saddle that you would like to raise.



in addition, dont touch the nut at the headstock, and when changing the strings, you unwind one, clip off the curled end and run it backwards towards the bridge out the back of the guitar.

dude why wouldnt you notice the fret buzz before you bought it? did you try it out? the shop should have set it up for you to work perfectlly. a brand new guitar should work like a dream
