Hey all, i have a minor problem with a fret. It is the B string at the 17th fret. I think its called the "dead" fret or something. Can it be adjusted so that it will ring properly? Btw it is a stratocaster, Fender.
check the height of the fret to make sure ot is even with the rest of the board.you could also replace the fret wire if necessary
Yeah, possible cause the strat is manufactured 8-9 years ago.
i own alot of strats and have had a similiar issue with the 2nd fret. it actually needed a trust rod adjustment and a bridge setup. i did it all myself and it is good to go now.. check your intonation and see if it is the cause of the problem.
raise ur action a little especially on the strings that dont ring out.
