Can fret buzz Be Fixed?
If you experience all or most of the strings buzzing when played open, it’s probably because the neck is back bowed. The strings are touching each other.
If you have a neck that has a lot of back-bowed strings, you may need to adjust the tension on the tuners to get them to vibrate freely. You can do this by tightening the tuning screws.
If you tighten the screws too much, the string tension will be too high, and you will not be able to tune the guitar.
How much buzzing is OK on guitar?

How do I stop my acoustic guitar from fret buzzing?
If you are fretting your guitar behind the intended fret, it can cause some buzzing. To remedy this, place your fretting finger behind the fret — not on top, and not in the space between two frets — but just behind the intended fret. The cleaner, more consistent tone will be created by this.
The best way to do this is to hold the guitar in your left hand, with your right hand resting on the neck. You should hear a buzzing sound. If you do not hear the buzzing, then you may need to adjust the position of your fingers.
How often should you change guitar strings?
The strings on your guitar need to be changed after every 100 hours of use. The rule of thumb is every 3 months because even though they’re not in use, they will wear with the elements and the water you left on them from playing in the rain. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
