My Ovation has a fret buzz... I just bought it in july from GC. My guitar class teacher recommended taking it back and having them set it up under warranty. They didn't set it up when i bought it.

So, my question:
Should i take it back to guitar center for free, or take it to a pro and have to pay to fix it?

My local GC doesn't even do setups in-house. They refer everything to a place a few doors down. Don't be surprised if your GC refuse to do it for free. I don't think a setup is a warranty-related issue. Wouldn't hurt to try, though.
Man I have heard some scary stories from a few GC, I'm not sure I'd let them touch my guitar, lol.
well since it looks as if you have the warrant with GC then take it to GC

<Raven> Do you have any idea how euphoric that is?

What model is it? how much did you buy it for?

If guitar center will do it for free, then have them do it. My guess is unless you bought a performance guarantee, then the warranty has nothing to do with them. If you didnt buy a P.G, then you will probably have to ship it to Ovation, which may or may not cost you less than just taking it to a local guy.

Is the fret buzz just on one string? you might even try adjusting it yourself
The model is CS 347
I got it for half price at 400$

The fret buzz is all strings, around the 12-15th frets

Guitar teacher said the neck needed to be adjusted
