    Take it to a pro and have it set up correctly.

    Please spend 5 minutes filling out your profile here. That will help us to know if we're dealing with someone with a different primary language, or just someone who sounds like it.

    +1 on taking it to a pro. It sound like it needs help, and that you're not sure at all what needs to be done. Which usually results in damaged instruments.

    oh!sorry i write some words in a wrong way,keyboard problem while writing,really sorry for that.there is no pro where i live,that y am here...
    to get a pretty good sound at the first fret,i need to rise the saddles and at the 20 fret my action is really high,and lot of tension on the string.when i lower it,lot of buzz + from 1 fret to 5 fret no sound.oh!the neck is in a backward bow
