Hey,
I recently lowered the action on my guitar but I realized that when I'm bending on the higher frets on the highest two strings, it loses its sound quite quickly. Will raising the action help? or is it somehow my strings' problem? Thanks

whats happening is that the bend is fretting out. Raising the action will help, this helped on my guitar. It is not the strings problem, its just fretting out, simple as that

It's "fretting out".

Either raise your action small amounts till it's gone, or try and adjust your truss rod.

This.
I had the same problem with my guitar for a while i didn't have a clue what was going on so i took it in to get set up and the guy explained to me that he needed to raise the action a bit. The high e string seemed to be the worst.

Raise the action if it is fretting out. The truss rod is more then likely not the issue.
