Fret Buzz issue
Hey everybody this is my first post on the forum so its a pleasure to finally be one of the gang! So heres my story. I play an ibanez RG08LTD and have had a few ibanez RG's wich i am very comfortable setting up myself to an extent. I do my own action and truss rod adjustments and have found that i am quite particular about how i like my guitar to be, i like the action as low as is possible without buzz. Now on my latest guitar i took it to the repair man to do a fret level and polish for me, as i notice that the 3rd fret high e was a dead note with the action at my prefered height. Upon collecting my guitar, i found that all he had done is raise my action to avoid the buzz, rather than actually fix the fret issues. So i took my guitar in a second time and attatched a note to it saying "i know how to adjust the truss rod/action etc i just require the actual fret to be fixed". I recieved an angry phonecall from the repair man telling me that if im going to "mess around with the guitar and screw up what hes done then theres no point in getting a proffessional to set it up". Im confused, as in my opinion and from my experience in life, anything can be fixed. When i asked him, how comes it is only buzzing in one spot then, his reply was "thats just how your guitar is, its as good as it gets". These guys make people like me feel silly for wanting action to be low..
Sorry for the long winded explanation. But id like some opinion from you guys on weather you think the guitar man was correct in what he said? The action is still (to me) higher than i would prefer, and this is only to counteract buzz from ONE fret on ONE string. Thankyou for any advice or help you can give me on this matter.
