Guitar is about 1-1.5 years old now purchased new, would the strings need to be replaced already? Never been dropped or anything either (I hope). I'm obviously completely oblivious when it comes to guitar stuff, maybe it has something to do with being a drummer. Was fine before, and the buzzing started about 2 months ago but was only noticeable when amplified recently. Made worse when it's tuned to Eb, from the lower string tension I imagine. Only on the top 3 strings for the most part (G B E), so even with the lowest string tuned to D that one still doesn't buzz. It's a LTD EC100QM incase anyone was wondering. So probably wasn't perfect from the factory to begin with I'd think, being nothing special n all. I'll have to get a pic up of my slowly growing guitar collection one of these days.
