Re: Buzzing *at* nut on RG1527????
I had something like this when I bought a very used guitar (coincidentally, also a 1527RB... an '06). I could NOT isolate the source of the buzzing, but like you it seemed to be coming from the nut itself--not from the frets. I don't remember exactly, but it was one of the inner 5 strings. Everything seemed fine... mounting screws were tight, nut was secure, etc. The nut was exceptionally worn and beat up though... and someone had taken a Dremel to one of the pressure pads at some point.
So, I finally just ordered a whole new nut from Rich, and that buzzing disappeared. It was the wrong color, because cosmo has been discontinued, but it solved the problem.
To this day, I believe the "V" groove (where the string comes off the nut on the fret side) was somehow worn and causing the buzz, but I really don't know for sure.
