    I just changed the strings on a tele of mine and when I played it the next day I noticed a spot (D string 10th fret) where the note is buzzing out.

    not after bending...if you finger that fret all you get is buzz...it was *not* there prior to the string change.

    the strings are some free George Ls that I got for buying something else. trial pack and all...

    this ever happen to anyone else?

    I'm going to change the string but i'm curious...thanks

    I've had a 'dead string' from new packs a few times. Try changing them again, bet that's it. Only other possibility is that you inadvertently lowered one side of the bridge a bit during the string change.

    Even different types/brands of the same gauge will have different tensions.
