Hey. I have a Jacksson slsxmg tuned down to Drop C. Everything sounds fine except for the F string which seems to lack tone, unlike the other strings it doesnt seems to ring out as much.

I bought the guitar approximately 5-6 months ago and had it set up by some guy at the shop. I have tried to higher the strings myself with no success, also i have checked the intonation, it's not perfect but not that bad either.

I have no idea what it could be, i believe i did experience this with my last guitar also, which was a Fender strat standard tuned. Any thoughts?

Change the strings. Seriously. That would be why any of them sound dull; because they're covered in shit.

Don't buy cheap instruments? Seriously, I don't know what you expect anyone to say, of course it's not going to sound good if it's a cheap acoustic.
