When playing the high E string on my guitar I get a weird ringing type sound, sort of like a rattling, on the 12th and 13th frets. Only those. I don't notice it on clean, but on distortion it really shows. My action isn't super low, and I made sure the string lock was tight. Idk wtf it is.

EDIT: I put a clip of it on my profile. I play normal notes, then the ones screwed up, then normal, then screwed up again.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Alright. How much would it usually cost to get that done at a shop?

Alright I think its the truss rod...

Is it really bad if my neck is slightly curved? I measured it when its laying down and by the body the fretboard is about 2 inches from the ground. By the 1st fret its almost 2.5 inches.

I'm pretty sure this means its the truss rod.. but if they re-adjust it will it be fine?

Well there's your problem. Go to your local music shop and they'll fix it up for you.
