The question I have is if the guitar was played at the shop. If so, and it did not buzz there, it is likely that during the trip from the shop to the home something changed--like a string resting on something, etc. Rule out strings touching the top and at the machines. The above assumes the ride from the shop to home was uneventful including facing summer heat (as in having the guitar in the trunk or left in the car for a lengthy time). If all appears well with strings not touching it might be good to take it back to the shop and let the person chase down the buzz. Saddle imperfections could cause buzzing but I would assume this would have been heard at the shop--unless the shop was some loud shred zone such as GC.
Yes, I tested the guitar at the shop with all the frets, but not the open G and B and other open strings. I also bought a hard case and put the guitar in the case and took it home in the trunk. the outside temperature was around 25 C that day, a little bit chill when I brought it home. So, there should not be any significant change made during the transportation.
The buzz only occurs when I play the open G with more power, or play G on other strings. It sounds like from the saddle area.
Would the saddle imperfection only causes buzz on certain note?
