Well I have a Epiphone Special Model, I love it to death with a Line 6 Spider 3 amp and Kerry King Marshall. A problem I am having is when I am playing when im strumming different notes (say on the high e, going 12 8 5 3 2), it tends to pinch one note or it doesn't come out. My strings are fairly tight (tuned ebgdae).

The problem is possibly the tightness of the strings (my fender has them looser on the same tuning). How would I change that? And if not, what's the problem?


Sorry, I'm a programmer, not a guitar player :P
Check neck relief maybe, I know that I have that same problem on my guitar up in the higher frets but that's also only when I pull up on my trem and it pinches the note out.

Confused by exactly what you mean when you say "pinch", do you mean you're getting accidental pinch harmonics?
