Fret Buzz on G n D 4th fret

Thats the only place where the guitar has buzz

is it not setted up properly or due to uneven frets
any idea?

ive given it a bit of neck relief and you can see the gap between the strings when frets 1 n 17 are depressed.

it has this fret buzz when i pick those 2 notes

any idea how do i solve it?

would making the neck straighter worsen it?

Re: Fret Buzz on G n D 4th fret

If it only buzzes at the 4th fret, it sounds like the fret is a little high and straightening or bowing the neck won't fix it. I'd suggest taking it to a pro and have him look at it. The fret might need to be filed down if it is too high. Don't try it yourself, unless you know what you're doing. You don't want to screw it up but filing too much.
