I guess this falls under "Tone and Effects;" but I notice on my 2014 Gibson LP Studio, my low E and A strings buzz whenever I play power chords or double stops, even when I try to use a light touch of the pick. I feel like my action is already fairly high, but maybe it just needs to be even higher?

I'm using gauges 42 for A string and 52 for low E, so maybe that has something to do with it?

But really what I wanted to get to, is that when I play through my amp, I'm not sure if I can even hear the fret-buzzing through the amp? But maybe that's because I don't know how power chords sound without buzzing lol

Any input?

This is a great question for the "ask a guitar tech" forum below. I'm sure if you move this there Steve will have something to say.

ah, thats it then. but this guy I know plays in a metal band and he said because his gauge is so thick, he keeps his action really high to avoid the buzzing. I wonder why he even worries about it then. they kind of sound like Born of Osiris.
