Yet another Xiphos xpt700

I had a problem where the 24th fret wouldn't bend without dying out and this one does that as well. I had them both set up so I'm guessing its the 27 frets making the 24th sound bad. Anyone have this problem?

Have the frets checked with a fret level (basically a thin, steel ruler). If it isn't a high fret, then you may have a small twist in your neck. A little bit of truss rod adjustment fixes that easily. I had the same issue with a B.C. Rich a while back. 1/4 turn and all was well.

well i'm guessing they don't intentionally make 27 fret guitars where the 24th fret isn't usable But i could be wrong
