So this is a bit annoying for me as 3 days ago I got my first Performer Strat HSS and it was buzzing on the low E as I was playing the Pentatonic on the A Minor. Here is the related post:
Fender Performer Strat HSS Buzz on the Low E String
I took it back to the shop yesterday and they suggested me that they will exchange that for another copy which I did! With this one, I do not see any more buzz when picking the A Minor pentatonic, but I notice the buzz when strumming the power chords. How could this be that the copy that I got also has this buzzing issue. I'm now starting to think if this is my technique that is the culprit? If this was my technique issue then why is that with the copy that I had before I was able to hear the buzz when picking the A Minor Pentatonic and with this new copy there is zero buzz when playing the A Minor Pentatonic.
I quickly checked the neck and it is pretty straight without any forward or backward bow. Should I add some relief? Should I lower the action? The problem I'm facing is it buzzes a lot when I strum the G5, A5, B5, C5 and D5 Power chords. This is annoying to me. I have been saving money for almost a year to get this beloved instrument. How many forums, how many questions and after lots of research comparing between Gibson, PRS, Ibanez, I decided to get this particular Strat. But now having to see this buzz is just letting me down. How can I resolve this my Strat friends!
