I'm new to the forums (literally, about 30 minutes). About 2 months ago I bought a PRS SE Custom 24 (http://www.thomann.de/be/prs_se_custom_24_gb_2013.htm).
It's safe to say I'm loving this guitar except for one thing. Fret buzz. Now I know 90% (if not more) of the time a good setup solves this.
However, I brought it into 2 different local guitar shops and it keeps coming back with fret buzz.
The fret buzz appears when playing the open low E and from the frets upward from the 7th fret mainly (on the lower E and A string).
I know some people say fret buzz is OK. But to me it bugs me a lot (especially on open lower E).
The shop techs told me I should get some 10's fitted to solve the problem. However I don't think PRS would ship guitars with 9's if that's what caused them problems.
Both techs have done full setups (costing me quite a lot) but it just isn't right.
The second tech told me I probably have too hard of an attack but it even occurs when I don't pick that hard. Am I totally going nuts?
So here are my questions to you guys:
A) Could it be that I'm just picking too hard (never had an issue with any guitar before, picking wise)?
B) Should I get 10's fitted (I had 10's on my previous Epiphone Les Paul)?
C) Could the nut slot be filed too deep?
D) Can anybody recommend me a good guitar tech in Belgium or something? Because I love this guitar so much but the fret buzz is totally ruining my mood to play the guitar.
