I had a buzzing like that that I was sure was coming from inside the guitar. I thought it was likely a loose brace because I could get it to stop by damping the top in a certain place. It turned out that a piece of binding at the end of the fingerboard had become unglued and was vibrating. My guitar tech found it and re-glued it at no charge.

Those vibrations can be mysterious and hard to locate. My guy did a nice job finding mine!

Thank you all for your responses and ideas!!! I know I will figure it out !! Played it yesterday and it seemed to be a lot less.... itís really interesting. Tuners are tight, plenty of relief in the neck.... nut and saddle are good... braces seem good... soooooooo ????? Maybe itís time to visit my luthier .... Randal Kramer , not only is he a great repair guy, his guitars are AMAZING!!!
