Default Fret buzz

Takamine GN51 BSB.
Been some fret buzz on the low E string since I changed the strings a couple months ago.
I'm now noticing it on the lowest 4 strings.
Does the buzz have to do with the split bridge thing in the pic?

Could be the humidity is low enough to have dropped the action (a common thing to hear, and I've experienced it myself), and/or the strings differ from what you had on before, possessing a lower tension, which would allow the neck to back-bow a bit. The split saddle shouldn't be an issue.

More likely humidity.

I've compiled a list of potential causes, a bir more than 30 different ones. Here's a link to a "flow chart" article on locating them:
