weird buzzing problem at one fret.

I bought a used rg570 from like the 80's. The guitar is awesome except for one problem, if i fret any string at the 9th fret the string buzzes and chokes like crazy. I really dont know why, at any other position the action and feel is fine its just at the 9th fret i get this problem. The fret seems to be seated correctly, ive tried bowing and straightening the neck, it doesnt matter its still the just this one fret i get this crazy problem.

anyone else ever encounter this or know what the problem is?

Re: weird buzzing problem at one fret.

Check the 10th fret. If the 10th is high, your buzz may be there when you fret at the 9th.

Check to see if one of them is either too high or loose. If it's loose, clamp it down and run some superglue under it. If it's high, dress it down.

It's probably a high fret, take it to a tech or luthier and then should be able to fix it right up.
