Original Poster is new to electric guitar and as such doesn't have a lot of experience in either playing, understanding what "feel" is normal to HIM, or in making adjustments to his guitar....this is where everyone starts out. As several others have stated, there is no "universal" good set up.....it all is based on the individual's strength, attack, pick/finger technique, amp choice and settings and personal style. For instance, a very accomplished jazz player may use a .013 or even.014 first string based string set, usually flatwounds, with super low string height and very low fret height on his guitar to achieve the tone he wants and the playing style/technique he wants (very few bent notes at all, very full bass/mid oriented tone, octave playing, warm/woody tone with a very clean amp sound, while a rock/blues player may have a higher action, much lighter strings for easy string bending, taller frets and an amp tone that is much dirtier/overdriven with lots of singing sustain. Neither player would be happy with the other's preferred set up. Also, more dynamic/heavier playing technique will require higher action to be buzz free than a lighter, more controlled style, which can have considerably lower action. Point is, that each of us has to gradually figure out what works and the feel that is most comfortable. I like the suggestion of taking the guitar back to the set up tech, and demonstrating your playing style in front of him, then addressing each individual issue and position where the buzzing is occurring. It may be something as simple as adding a quarter turn more neck relief on the truss rod adjustment. As someone who makes my living playing guitar, I have used EB, GHS, D'Addario, JR, and other strings without problems.....true, there are subtle tonal differences, but 90% of the true tone is in the player's hands/technique. After the OP gets a good overall baseline on his set up, he can then begin to slowly tweak/modify it, as he gains more knowledge and playing experience. Best of luck.
