    Ok

    My guitar basically has a straight neck

    .005” of relief at 8th fret

    We’re talking straight

    The nut is cut down super low

    This is very very important make sure your guitar is in spec. I put mine pretty low with a set of files I got on Philadelphia luthier tools.

    I set my action at 1/16 of an inch at the 15 fret.

    She buzzes. The strings are low and everything is easy, but she only buzzes when unplugged. Sometimes that high e pentatonic bend will buzz out on me but through the amp it still sounds amazing.

    Sometimes we hear things unplugged the guitar doesn’t actually put out

    There could be a subconscious tendency to hit the strings a bit harder when unplugged to compensate for the loss of sound when amplified. That will cause a noticeable buzz not heard when amped.

    I happen to setup my low E a bit lower at 12th fret so that it buzzes abit without going dead. It adds zing on the treble frequency when played from the dirty channel.

    I pound my strings whether chords or single notes. I need about .010-.015 depending on the guitar and where the neck meets the body and I prefer my action fairly high.
