The vibration of the strings causes the soundboard (top) of the guitar to vibrate in a similar manner. The vibration of the soundboard then causes the air inside (and around) the guitar to vibrate...the vibrations of the air is what you hear.and what you hear is known as a sound wave or sound waves

The frets don't nessicarily make the noise, but the tension on the frets as you get higher on the fretboard is what makes the noise. It's the strings that make the sound. They vibrate when you pluck them producing a sound. The sound is amplified in the body of the guitar(acoustic guitar). The frets enable you to vary the length of the strings thus making them produce a different sound.
