dwalton those links were fabulous and had a wealth of information so thank you very much for posting them. I was especially amazed that someone had done their PhD thesis on such things. I'm glad I'm not the only one hearing strange things. I noticed one luthier called it chaotic vibrations and I found that interesting. I was closely watching the string of the problematic guitar and I could swear that the way it was vibrating looked very abnormal and actually seemed "chaotic" when compared to other fretted locations on that same string. Might be crazy talk but that is what it seemed like.

So has anyone tried the solutions put forth in those links and had success? I find this rather fascinating and incredibly frustrating. I'm looking to get a new nylon string guitar and now I'm going to go mad listening for very odd buzzing and vibrating. Maybe I should just stick to steel string guitars.
