Take it to a guitar shop and see if they'll set your guitar up for you and hopefully stop the buzzing.

Well, I would go to your local music shop to get a In-house setup. Guitar Center does not do this, I just asked today... so go to your local non-GC music center and they will fix it up. I'm actually going tomorrow to get my Electric Guitar setup and maybe my new acoustic, but my acoustic seems fine...

Get it set up. it costs about $30-50 (plus $5 for new strings). if the buzzing continues SMASH THE MOTHER ****ER!!!

If you're a newbie, let me tell you that new strings always have a metalish sound... Maybe you've mistaken that for fret buzz.

if it's on a specific one or few frets, those frets may need to be sanded down, you may need to adjust your truss rod if it's on a specific string or set of.

How did you change your strings? one at a time, right? did you increase the gauge?

i have a better idea don't take it to GC learn to do it yourself with the help of the forums imo opinion us guitarists get ripped off for things like pickup changes, paintjobs, setups, etc if you're serious about guitar you should learn to set it up IMO you should just teak the leap and dive in and learn it now. I'm going to once a problem arises. If you still have no luck just take the guitar and smash it, preferably over your head but be sure to tape it :P
