Action too low? Fret sticking out? Check youtube videos for action adjustmets.

ive adjusted action, but i dont think it this that as i have had the guitar a while and the problem has only just started to happen.

could it be something to do with truss rod or maybe the fret bars??

Its the fret, your getting fret out. You might need to have the frets redressed. Also check your truss rod, it may not have enough relief.
#5
how do you adjust the truss rod, as in how do you know if you are turning it the right way??
#7
if it was the action wouldnt the problem have occured from the start and not just the last few weeks?
#9
again, why has the problem only just occured it its the action? i havent altered the action for a long time, like since i got the guitar 2 years ago

right tighty lefty loosy. The tighter then truss rod the more back bow it will have, the looser the truss rod is the more relief it will have. Heres a video for you.

You probably have a dead fret. That happened to one of my guitars and every time i bend on a certain string and a certain fret, it kindof squeals and then dies. It sucks!!
If i were you id take it to a proffesional to get the correct diagnosis, and make sure you dont spend alot of money to get your frets redressed and that not solve your problem.

good luck!!

Sounds like the truss rod needs adjusting. I wouldn't recommend you do this yourself, as it involves tiny movements and being left for a couple of hours. One wrong move and you can irreversibly ruin your neck.

Alternatively your 11th fret could be slightly raised, which would possibly need buffing down. Either way, take it to a tech.

Bending problem?

Just bend it the other way.

Did you switch to lighter guage strings? you are hitting a fret or pickup.It wouldnt be your truss rod.Don't fool with it if you've never done it before. press down on your string at the 1st and 24th fret Or 22nd,whatever.Is your neck straight Panhead201
