I just got a CD-140SCE from Amazon but there's a problem while playing the 1st string (highest pitch) at the 13th fret: it plays the same tone as the 14th fret with a lot of buzzing. :evil:

I initially thought the 14th fret was too high, but if I tighten the truss rod (thus straightening the neck) the problem moves to the 14th/15th or even 15th/16th frets.

Looking down the neck I can see there's a slight bump around those frets. I can see the bump below the 1st string but not below the 6th string so this is probably the culprit. I'm planning to return the guitar, are there other alternatives?

Thanks guys!

You have to see a good luthier to fix it. Or guitar just need a good set up.

I don't know what is your experience in tuning guitar , but neck curve need adjustment with proper mesuring tool , not by eyes unless you are a pro.

2- If neck is in specs , you check action. and adjust if need. Good luck with acoustic bridge

3- You check fret height , with fret mesuring tool...


Or you send your guitar back if you are sure it is a serious defect, not a basic tune up.
