    Fret buzz

    Just outta curiosity, do your guitars have any level of fret buzz?

    I mean, when properly set up, do they buzz acoustically, even though the amp doesn't show it?

    My guitars are often set up by techs and my strats do buzz unplugged (and it's no issue to me, electric guitars are meant to be played plugged in). My Rickenbacker doesn't, or at least not so much.

    I use light gauge strings, that may contribute.

    Mine don't buzz at all, but that's because I like my action on the high side- not to prevent buzzing, but to make string bending easier. If my strings are low enough to buzz, I usually slip when bending.
    I've set up other people's guitars with low action and slight acoustic buzzing that wasn't heard through the amp and didn't affect sustain.
