For some reason, the upper frets of the high e string on my guitar sound flat. The guitar is in tune perfectly, but that string does not seem to be in tune with itself. It gets flat as you go up the frets. For example: the 5th fret is A, but the 17th, an octave up, is actually in between Ab and A. This is making it extremely difficult to play. Can someone explain what might cause this?

Sounds like an intonation problem. You need to adjust the intonation on your guitar at the bridge.

Maybe adjust your intonation or truss rod, or just get your guitar set-up. I had a similar problem on the 17th fret and it turned out the action was just a little too low.
