I have been having problems with fret buzz on my guitar for quite some time, everytime i get it repaired (which is costing me loads) it ends up coming back again within a few weeks (this time its because i changed the strings). I have a choice I can either go to Mansons and try and get it repaired there and pray that this is the last time i have to do it. Or I can try to sell it cheap and then save to buy something else (although that might be a while) I really want to learn to play but everytime i make a bit of progress this happens and it becomes unplayable. So... what should i do?

lol dude i have tried that, I have raised it to the point that its unplayable and its still there, also i have loosened the russ rod but that just made the action at the middle of the neck really high so that sucked as well. It sucks cos after having it set up it was pretty nice (good action, no buzz) and as soon as i changed the strings it was bad again.

did you try adjusting the bridge? It might be moving especially after changing strings.

Did you change the strings one by one? Take one off, put the new one on, etc... As compared to take them all off, then put new ones on...

If you change all your strings at once you'll get fret buzz from hell for a while.

Go read a guide to changing strings next time you change them... If it still f***s up, your guitar's the problem.

yes i did them one at a time. I then waited a day to see if the buzzing went away but it didnt. I will take it to mansons and see what they can do im just getting annoyed having to spend £40 every other week getting this thing sorted. I have spent £100 on it so far just getting it fixed and its broken again. I could have bought a far better guitar with all that money ya know so its just frustrating.

well the nearest place to me that i know of is Mansons and they are very well known (make muse guitars) and as such expensive. I have also payed £70 for a fret dress and another £30 for a set up at a little shop in leicester who didnt actually fix it they just told me its a fault with the guitar lol (as if i didnt know that).
