well i changed my strings on my new guitar for the first time since owning it (bout 2 months)
now im getting fret buzz only on my top string on every fret.
all other strings/frets are fine. (slight buzz due to new strings which i understand is normal)

its an ibanez s prestige w/ zr floating trem tuned to drop b with ernie ball 11-54's
it was set up properly this way by a tech.
played amazing with no buzz at all before i touched it

i did nothing but change the strings. exact same strings, exact same tuning.
didnt touch the action.

ive changed my jackson with a floyd rose strings plenty of times with no problems...
the two guitars are not that different from what i can see.

what happened and how can i fix it?

The strings might no have stretched out yet. If this is the case, try playing around w/ the whammy a bit to loosen them up. If the buzz persists, then the action might have to be adjusted.

i stretched them out with my hands the way i normally do.. there no going out of tune any more so i think there stretched ok.

ill try it with the whammy just to be safe.

mine did this on my Baritone after I replaced the strings on it, but after a couple days of playing, there is absolutely no more fret buzz . The strings simply had not stretched.

whammy didnt do anything...

guess ill play with the action and see what happens.
i just dont get how a string change can mess with the action when i didnt change gauges.
provided ive only owned one guitar before this.

worst case ill bring it back to the tech.

thanks Generalpwnt
any other comments?

Well, the set up could/may have something to do with it, and strings normally buzz after being replaced, regardless if they have been pre-stretched or not.

I would play it for a few days, and if no success, then I'd get it re-set by someone else.

Also check to make sure your bridge didn't shift or something stupid like that.
