if you dont know what youre doing, take it to a guitar store that does repairs. you dont wanna screw up the guitar, get them to show you how to do it

What's an acoustic guitar? I forget. One of them big hollow things with the big hole in the middle?

are you getting any buzz right now?
if so, what strings, what frets.
what gauge and how new are the strings?

you can start by

fret the first fret on the low E, at the same time,
fret the last fret on the low E. around the 19th.

with both places held, look at the middle gap. around the 8th fret.

can you fit a credit card in that space?
can you fit a medium pick?


lastly, fret the 3rd fret.
when fret, does the string lay on the 1st fret of any of the strings?
if you can't tell, tap the string there and listen for a noise.


if you take your time and answer those questions, i'll help.


for all the guys spamming the thread.
if you continue, i'll ask you get a warning.

for the guys suggesting he take it into a shop.
that doesnt make sense on some model guitars.

also, he knows he can take it in, no reason to keep repeating the obvious.
