Unhappy note sounds :dead: Slight buzz only on the Low E string "C" note

I got a brand new 555 (The owner bought a Parker instead) It is 9 years old but was never played, Its great except for a "dead buzz type sound from the C note on the low E string ONLY!
Every other note plays great. Any Ideas? I paid $450 buck for it along with a custom Ibanez hardshell case, plus he takes payments! Thanks

Could be a slightly high spot on a fret just up from the C note, maybe a fret dress/level would be worth doing?

It could also be that a fret isn't quite seated properly and might need to be pressed down in to the slot and glued in.
