buzzing and fret crowning

hey, just wondering really quick, when you eliminate buzzing, is it buzzing unplugged or all buzzing through an amp? *and also, when would you decide when you need to recrown a fret? *Thanks all *= *)

buzzing and fret crowning

it depends, how much buzzing can you live with vs how high an action??? *to get absolutely no buzzing, your action needs to be really high, or you have to play intensely soft, so, there is some buzzing, but even with bad buzz, I've never really had a guitar that buzzed through the pickups. * Crowning, unless they are insanely flat, that doesn't cause buzzing anyway, and even if the are totally flat it won't really cause a buzz as much as a dead sound. *levelling the frets, if you have a low one will get rid of it, because then it isn't buzzing on the next fret. *

BTW, the only real reason probably nobody posted here, is if you go the tech section, this has been discussed numerous times, maybe not exact wording, but very close. *
