Hi i have owned my guitar for over year now with no major problems with it and recently here has been a lot of buzzing around the 3rd and 10th frets of pretty much all the strings i thought it was because i resturn it myself but i have been to a music shop and had it restrung abd broke in properly bt the problem is still persisting can anyone tell me what might be wrong or what i might be able to do to solve it please?

Did it start when it got really cold there? I put light strings on my acoustic in summer and medium in winter. The lights will buzz in winter.

you might want to adjust your truss rod.

get a ruler or straight edge. place it on the neck if the middle touches and the ends are not. or it is completely flat(your can have it this way but to keep it simple) you need a adjustment to your truss rod(Google it. many helpful websites out there no forums to many egos). that is what I'm guessing. or it's your action.

I tried to do this myself and messed everything up. It takes a lot of trial and error if you don't have the right tools.

It's about $150 U.S. dollars to refret with a complete adjustment of the truss rod, bridge height and intonation. If you like the guitar its well worth it.

I don't know if I'd call it "buzzing," but I'm having a similar problem. It only effects the G string (haha!) on my guitar, and is much more noticeable when the string is played open. It's more of a rattling sound than buzzing. Also, when I tune the string I'll get a kind of popping noise (metallic popping noise, not like "pop!"). Maybe like the string's slipping. I haven't been able to really identify anything wrong, so hopefully someone else has had a similar problem in the past.

if it buzzes while open somethings lose/off at the bridge or you need a new nut. but if you have one of those locking nuts can't help you never messed with one to give advice on it
