Why are my strings closer to the fret board at the top of the neck. I have about double the distance to the fret board at the bottom of the neck than I have at the top.
#2
Top of the fretboard being nearest the nut? Well just looking at the angle your fretboard makes compared to the string, the fretboard and strings aren't parallel with each other.
#3
You mean your strings are higher at the higher frets which is closer to the body? If it is then it's normal. It's how guitar are built.

My guitar string height at the 1st fret is pretty close, about 0.5mm while at the 12th fret it's 2mm. That's the low E string.

It's supposed to be that way. You can lower the string height (also known as action), but it will always be higher on the high frets then it is at the nut.

It's your action.


Lol so it's the string heights fault for being lower at the nut compared to at the last fret?

I'm sure you're being sarcastic but for those who don't know I'm going to say that the nut height is a factor but they shouldn't forget about relief and the truss rod.
Always tin your strings.

Well I don't understand how the string height at the nut is lower then at the last fret because of the action? And also you must account for the neck angle as well.

It is normal, but if it is WAY off you may need a trus rod adjustment.

What kind of guitar is it?

What I meant to say is that the nut slot height has to do with the overall action but I didn't mean that it was a problem. And yes, I was referring to the action too.
Always tin your strings.

Just lower the bride a bit, but it's normal.
