I have a buzz in 1st string even when played open. Is this a string, stringing, or guitar problem?ANSWERHi, herm--It depends on the guitar, but generally a buzz on an open string means that the string is too close to some fret. It may also be that the groove for that string in the nut is worn down.My advice is to take the guitar to a qualified repair person--it probably won't cost anything for them to look at it and identify the problem.LynneGive us five minutes of your time and we'll have you playing killer guitar!
