When there is buzz on a fretted note that usually has nothing to do with the nut (or the nuts :hmm:) .... except one thing I had on an acoustic - the portion of the string ABOVE the fretted note rang sympathetically and buzzed ...... nothing could be done about that.

But I'm assuming you hear the buzz in the amplified sound? Is that true?

Also it is strange that the treble strings buzz - normally the bass strings are the troublemakers - lower tension and greater 'swing'

Hold the guitar and get your ear really close. Pluck the offending string trying ro make it buzz. Listen closely, move your ear around the guitar until you find where the buzz is. I was absolutely convinced I had a loose brace in my lg2... listened closely and it was a tuning key rattling. Its amazing how the location will trick you until you get down close.
