I have mentioned in other threads that I had recently bought a beater electric guitar to mess around with that sounds pretty badass for the price. It's a strat copy (johnson bad water SRO) that generally sounds pretty good.

I had picked up the guitar the other day to jam and found that my 4th and 5th frets are dead for the 1st and 2nd strings (the B and E strings). This is driving me crazy because the guitar is virtually brand new and shouldn't have dead frets. (By dead fret I mean that you will play a single note done the fret board and when you come to the 4th and 5th frets all you get is a ugly ping sound.)

I was wondering if anyone knew of a quick fix for a dead fret without breaking the bank. The guitar wasn't much money in the first place so I don't think it would be worth a re-fret job judging how expensive that would be.

This site it tits, I love being able to ask people about shit like this. Thank you all for your posts.

I think you would find more help in the electric guitar forum or the
Gear Building & Customizing forum.

Cool story, bro.
But doesn't this belong in the electric guitar forum?

If your fifth fret is broken, don't worry. According to my buddy Airship, the next string up is the same note. Amazing.

I know, I was as surprised as you are.

Is it just me, or is Rock Shredwell a fucking badass name?

Not quite up there with Max Power. But not a wussy name.

I had a dead 14th fret, and I fixed it with a hammer. Wouldn't reccomend it though.
