My guitars fret buzzing. Its an Epiphone Dot, and I can't tell my parents because it cost them $400. So, I'm pretty much screwed and need some help you guys.

if its used u might need 2 adjust the thrust rod but tis probaly the bridge



that's truss rod :P

but before you touch that.. try to raise the bridge/trem whichever you have.

yep seems like your action is too low. you could either set this up yourself or get someone to set it up for you

How high should it be.... mine is pretty high. I think its my truss rod. Plus, its only on the the E,A, and D string.

height is preference.
but if it feels too high already then lets measure ur neck.

fret the low e at the first fret. at the same time,
fret the low e at the 17th fret. where the neck meets the body.

with both places held, look at the middle frets 7-8th fret.

if the string lays on the fretwire there, then u dont have enough gap.
if the string is more than a credit cards thickness up from the wire there, then u have too much gap. (this is probably the case.)

measure and repost.

My guitar buzzed too at one point an you just have to bring it in to a shop and they can fix it for you. How much is the Epiphone Dot and besides the buzzing does it sound nice? I was thinking of buying one.

If you really like blues, its perfect for you. Other than that, its a great all around guitar for me. If you have the extra cash, buy some good pickups for it. I didn't really like the pickups on mine. If you do buy some though, have a professional to install it, because its gonna be hard as ****.
