Hi I have had this guitar for about three years .I play out with it very often. My problem is I like the action very low and I like .11 gauge strings on it ..Fingerstyle.i keep it humidified in the case but it always buzzs terribly. should I skip using these strings altogther and stick with .12's like it is supposed to have? Thanks.[ bought it brand new].

There are two possible options for your buzzing problem. First the neck angle is wrong - too much back bow. Second your nut slots could be cut too low. I would check the neck angle first and that may solve your problem.
