I got it today!!!! - my jem 7vwh

I open the case and almost cried, man this thing is beautiful! words cant describe this guitar, the neck is so fast and the tremolo is 10 times better feeling than my original floyd rose on my old guitar. There is one thing though. I have fret buzz on the lower part of the neck, starting at the 1st fret and it keeps buzzing down until about the 10th fret or so. I'm thinking that maybe since it got shipped from colorado to north carolina the temp and altitude differences might have thrown the truss rod out a little. *can someone help me out here? I can tell this thing is going to bring me much joy!

It probably needs a little relief bow, just loosen the truss a 1/4 turn and sight the neck, retune and see if your buzz is gone.

That is my guess too. Give the truss rod like 1/4 turn counterclockwise and that should do it
