The action on the acoustic may be too low. you might have to have it adjusted.

well, if its just buzz and no note coming, out, than blitzkrieg could be right.... tune the strings.

if there's a slight buzz, it means you most likely bought a beginner's acoustic and there's fret buzz. go get it set up. if there's still buzz, now you know why we all don't buy cheaper guitars

hope this helped.

If your brand new to the guitar your finger may not be strong enough yet to get clear notes from those top frets. This sounds like somthing simple, so they best thing you can do if have somebody experienced look at your guitar and tell you if its good to play or not.

did you post in the thread?

if you can't fit a credit card in the middle relief, you'll have to turn the truss rod 1/4 turn counter clockwise.
don't force the turn and leave the guitar in tune while it settles tonight.

any more questions and you can post in the thread.


also, keep in mind, as you play more, you'll fret the strings a little cleaner and wont get so much buzz.
