My new guitar has this problem. On certain frets, so far only on the unwound treble strings, the fretted note will fade out very quickly and go into a harmonic. Some frets the note will just die in less than a second, really not acceptable on an Ibanez Prestige guitar. Is the neck in need of adjustment or what? Maybe the action is too low on the first three strings? The guitar is practically brand new from Ebay, no scratches, dents or any sort of damage at all.

Anyone have this problem before?

New guitar? Have you tried messing the EQ and gain, in order to accomodate the (possibly) different wood/pups?

If yes to both, then it could very well be a setup problem. In that case, search the web (*cough* Ibanezrules.com *cough*) for hints and guidelines on setting up guitars, and try to find out what's wrong yourself. If you find you can't find/fix yourself, THEN take it to the tech. It's not worth spending money on something you later find you could do yourself.
