Angry Fixing G string buzzing

I bought a js100 from a guitar shop for 250. (they were selling all their ibanez guitars half priced)

But when I recieved it there was buzzing on the one noted G string. I have read that this has happened to more people then just me. It has to be floyd rose problems because I have loosened and tightened the trussrod, and lowered and highered the bridge while fixing the action, but the G string's open note continues to buzz out! There has to be an issue with the nut or the floyd rose saddles.

Any help? Thanks much.

i actually had this on my js 100 but i changed the nuts at the top of the neck around and tightened it slightly and it seems to be fine now.

Get your shop to fix it... Or return it... and save up for a 1000

Re: Fixing G string buzzing

Send it for a full checkup. Tat means intonation .. bla bla .. and the most important thing for your buzzing problem.. 'CROWNING'.. the most important part is crowning ..the guitar tech will level your frets so that it won't buzz. That'll solve it
