Your neck is bending back which means the strings are being pulled tighter and closer to the fingerboard than you want.

You need a truss rod adjustment because the action on your guitar is too low and the strings and touching the frets farther down the fingerboard.

It's a pretty straightforward repair and most shops will do it for 20-25 dollars.

You can do it yourself with an allen wrench but I wouldn't recommend it if you dont know what you are doing.

Thats not all that uncommon. I'm guessing it's a $200-$300 entry level acoustic? Guitars are easily affected by the climate. If it was shipped for 4 days in heat, stored in the cold with only a box to protect it wouldn;t be surprising if the neck shifted.

Personally as soon as I get a guitar the first thing I do is take it to shop and have it set up professionally to suit my playing style. I've never been satisfied with a guitar right off the shelf or out of the box.

Hmmm...that's interesting. My girlfriend went to the shop and bought it, and they had it stringed and tuned and everything there. She gave it to me about 3 days later for my birthday, but it was sitting in her house. I have taken it around in my car, maybe sitting in the backseat did it. I don't know, I never even thought about it.

It's a Fender Squier Acoustic. I never really looked up the price. I'd assume it's between 200 and 300 bucks.

Being in the car for a couple days will do the trick especially if you have a soft case. Another thing people don't consider is leaving it out at the house. If you are in a basement the moisture in the air can wreak havoc on a guitar over time.

If you recently purchased it I would suggest taking it back and letting them know you have had the issue from the outset.

Worst comes to worst you pay 20-30 bucks for an adjustment. If you're lucky they will just do it for free being that you bought it there.

That's true. And if you really got the groove, then bass is your thing. At least Finland is full of bass player jokes but they shouldn't be taken seriously, it's a very versatile instrument if you learn to play it like one.

And by the way, I started playing guitar when I was 7 and had a Yamaha CS-100A (I still have it). I quit it when teen, though I sometimes play some freestyle **** with it. Nowadays I play some drums and percussion, love listening good guitar playing, though.
