Weird sort of string-buzz on high e-string on my RG Premium
the high e-string of my RG827BK Premium has some sort of strange slight buzzing going on. It's not the kind of string buzzing you get when the action is too low, it sounds more like something is hindering the string from ringing freely. It occurs on the open string as well as when it's fretted. So, I figured it might be the bridge, and I checked the bridge saddle for dents/grooves, but the bridge saddle looks 100% fine.
At first I thought it's just a bad string, but I just changed strings and even with a new high e-string it's the same problem.
I have also tried lowering the PUs a bit (I have heard the magnetic pull might cause some weird buzzing), but that did not help either.
Anybody have an idea what could be causing this and how to solve this?
