fret buzz returns

Are you sure this is fret buzz ? Sometimes a pickup, mounting ring or scratchplate will develop a random buzz on certain notes. If it really is string buzz, is it on one string or all ?

 

If fret buzz appears quickly, I suspect string(s) for damage - sometimes an accidental knock that presses a string against the fretboard can put a kink in the string. Also, it's possible that a fret has sprung up. It's worth trying a fresh set of strings also.

Was the selector switch in the middle position (and more importantly were you playing it through the amp?)

 

If it was in the middle position and you werent playing through the amp, that mightve been it.

 

(Those basterds kinda wiggle around in the middle position, lol)

Damn' date=' the truss rod adjustment should do it. Did you guys have your first big storm in a while? Down here we had about 2 days of rain and that drove the humidity to hell.[/quote']

 

We had about 2 inches of rain so I guess the humidity has been little higher lately.
