Hey UG I have an Epiphone Masterbilt and around the 14th(some strings it is a different fret around there) fret takes the string until I get down to around the 9th fret then it fret's again if that makes sense. Is there a quick fix to this or is this a professional setup problem?

Can't quite understand what you're trying to describe...

I think you mean your fret is too high in that place, so when your finger is at the ninth fret, the note that rings out is actually coming at the 14th fret. So your fret is too high. There are a few ways you can lower it. A file is used by a lot of people.

Exactly. I will mess around with that and see what I can do.

Before you start filing try lightly tapping the fret with a hammer to see if you can get it to go down back into the fret board. Cover the fret with some cloth or something to avoid denting them.

And i learned that if you need to file, watch the fret job videos on youtube. Theres one where a guy is doing one on a prs that taught me alot. Mainly go with the direction of the neck. Not the fret. Gotta use a sharpie on the fret tops, and use a wide fine single cut file to find out wbich frets need the most work. Youtube my friend
