Any better?

Could be that or something up with your frets. Had to replace one of mine before.

@ slold, Yeah, what's that all about?
Joe, it's a new guitar so why not spend a couple of bucks and get it set up?
I did a search in the archives for the word "buzz" and there are several threads about string buzz. Might want to read those.

I think he's only playing when he says douche. My friends joke around with that name all the time. Don't worry :)

If ya raise the action you may have to set the intonation,I've had that happen on new guitars,but really thats wierd. Also it could have like 9'S on it or tens but not be set up for it,like phip said few bucks get it set up,I prefer to do my own...but that will come in time. @ Skold whats up dude ......

set up seems like a good idea

i dont think ill do anything yet myself until i know exactly what im doing.

had a look through the archive too, some helpful stuff, cheers.

anyone else had anything like this?

seems a bit odd to have it soooo soon after buying the guitar to me tho :/

Actually it doesn't sound odd to me at all. it's exactly what i would expect. It gets built, put in a box and shipped to the store. A small amount of alignment is done at the factory and if no one at the store (too busy) takes the time to set it up it has little problems. not unusual in my business (TV displays) to find this. Not a big deal.

if you raise the action, you also need to flatten the action, and then after that, intone it. which is easy, but tedious. and you need a needle tuner, a cheap digital one won't cut it, you'll need a good one.
