I just bought a Gibson sg special, which was set up at little too high for my liking, when I lowered the bridge, I get Fret buzz on the low E, I have checked the Truss rod it seems to be ok, is there anything else I can do?

I don't know what a thrust rod is but I will guess it is a Truss rod. I just raise my action.

it may rattle a little, but thats just because you have your action a little low, but when plugged into an amp, it doesn't matter you will not hear it.

That's what I thought just turn the amp up a touch, because the action is nice and low and easy to play, and it's only on the low E, the guitar is brand new i only got it this morning.

where is it buzzing? open string or fretted? possibly a bad fret wire. or the nut.

It only buzz's when fretted, but mostly all way up and down the neck,

from the 1st - 7th fret buzz= adjust truss rod
12th - higher fret buzz = action

seriously, if you don't know how to adjust a truss rod, try youtube or search it in google, or take it to a tech to see what's the real problem

Thanks again for the reply, I would say it is from the 2nd to 12 fret so would that mean slackening slightly the truss rod?

It could also be that the strings have not yet had a chance to wear in yet, my strings always buzz a bit, particulary the low E, after I replace them no matter which guitar it is. Play it as much as possible for the next couple days, or even a week, and see if the buzzing starts to wear down or go away alltogether.
Got a question about Baritone guitars? Feel free to PM me.

Thanks to UG, I converted from Metalcore to some "real" Metal.

Thanks will try that ;-)
