So my guitar is set up all nice with new stretched strings and all that. I just got it recently actually. One problem, as soon as I go up to any fret past 10 on the high e and b strings, I get zero sound. I noticed that the string is a tad close to the fretboard's edge- but I figured that maybe it's my left hand an not the guitar.

If you need an example, listen to the solo for warrants cherry pie. The fast run after the whammy dive would hVe no sound

Check the height of your neck pickup, it could be that it is too high.

I play on the bridge pickup a-la hair metal. And the pickup is outta the way


EDIT: it's hammer ins and pulloffs giving zero sound. Notes need to be aggressively picked

neck pickups dont disappear when you dont use them. The strings might make a contact with the pole pieces of it.

I meant to say they don't touch the strings

Your trussrod is too tight I think. Push down at the first fret and the last fret on the high e string, if there's no gap between the 12 fret and the string, you need to adjust your trussrod.

there is truth to this but I would not adjust your truss rod unless you know what you're doing.
Good neck relief and action should allow you to play high frets loud and clear.
if neck relief is off, or action too low... you'll notice it most at those high frets especially bends.
if you think this is the problem try raising the action a bit (that is easy to do yourself) - if a neck adjustment is needed... either know what you're doing or take it to a shop.
