"I agree with Taff, it’s probably on the bridge or nut, may just need a little fine tuning of the string grooves. Tread lightly, it can get away from you real fast, depending on the material? Kind of hard to figure out without seeing it tho?"

"Hi again, I forgot to mention, that to stop the neck from tilting I would either remove wood from the high side to make the seating surface level or, shim the low side to achieve the same outcome. Let us know what you find. Taff"

Ok. I have a string buzz on the low (thick) string when open and all the way up the neck. The other 2 strings are good and play clean when open and all the way up the neck. I noticed that when I look at the guitar along the length the neck tilts when I screw the neck to the box. My thinking here is that this is what is causing the one string buzz.
