I am experiencing fret buzz when I pick the e, b, and g strings at the third fret. Does anyone know what the problem could be? I use 10's and am curious if changing to a higher guage would fix this problem? Is it the contact that the string makes with other frets that produces the buzz? If this is true, then wouldn't a higher guage produce a smaller range of motion when the string vibrates? I know that a higher guage would create more bow in the neck and this would definetely reduce buzz. Also, why is a straight bow in the neck so desirable? I know that raising the action would help but I dont want to do that. Any help would be much appreciated.
