I just bought this guitar 3 months ago, it is new. once i loosened strings to clear between pickups and fretboart and after i tightened them it started buzzing.

is this normal? see how guitar neck goes up, what can i do to fix this?

you need to adjust the truss rod and put more releif in the neck.

loosen the strings and only turn the nut 1/4-1/2 turn at a time. then re tune and check intonation at the open and 12th fret and that there is no fret buzz

The neck tilting upwards at an angle like that is not normal. Usually you either want the neck to be mounted parallel with the body or slightly tilted back, depending on what kind of bridge the guitar is using.

Are the screws attaching the neck to the body tight?

i think you are in over your head. seek professional help before you break something.

and i think you are right in my country i don't think there is anyone who can help about this problem... only internet. i guess i'll just go with what i have until getting new guitar.

I would take the neck off to see what is preventing it from sitting flat. Provided you have the right sized screwdriver, there's nothing you can really break provided you use common sense. If you cannot find what is causing it to not sit flat, you can make a shim to correct the weird angle.

I'll just let it be... the buzz isn't noticeable when the guitar is plugged, but it would be good not to have this problem.

Did you change to a heavier set of strings? Has the temperature and humidity suddenly changed where you live?
