right, your problem is fret buzz. To fix it, use an allen key to raise the low e saddle (the bit at the bridge). Then retune, and that should fix your buzz. It's a pretty common problem.

And how old are those strings? If they're the ones that came with it, then more than likely it's long past time to change them. Old strings can do weird things, buzzing being one of them. Pop a new set on and see if that helps. I'd suggest .009's in whatever brand you choose. I use Gibson Brite wires on my SG. Fender Bullet ends might be what you want if you want to keep the strings stock.

Ok, my camera is broken, so I'll try and use words to explain. This may be confusing, so google it as well.

Here goes... At the bridge of your strat, the bits where the strings come through are the saddles. On each saddle, there will be two screw things that need an allen wrench to turn. Basically, get a small allen wrench and twist the screws. This will raise or lower the saddle. To fix your buzz, you will need to raise the low e saddle. It's pretty easy, so just tinker til it works.

no problem centorium. I suggest you lower the action on all your strings, just high enough to avoid fret buzz. A lower action (generally) makes for easier playing.

Is raising it moving to closer to the neck or the bridge? (tightening or loosening the screw?)


Not the single screw that moves the whole saddle closer to or farther away from the bridge. There's 2 small set screws on either side of each saddle which are used for action adjustments. These will 1) raise/lower each saddle and 2) adjust the angle of each saddle so that you can maintain the same fretboard radius on the saddles that's on the fretboard itself.
The screw you're thinking of turning will adjust the intonation of the string. This screw is behind the saddle. Don't turn this unless you're prepared to re-intonate your guitar.
