There is something wrong with the 5th fret of my low E string. Everytime I play it no sound comes out or it comes out really s***ty sounding. There is nothing wrong with any of my other frets or strings. Does anybody know how to fix this? It was working a few hours ago too. And its doesn't have to do with tuning or being a bad player. I'v retuned it a few times already and its still not working

So I, with a broomstick(Just in case) walk right where they can see me and I said:

"You kids ever taken a broom up the ass?"

The look on their face was priceless, and they ran, and I mean ran like a bat out of hell.

thats really weird, have u checked for neck warpage, saddle(bridge) height. have you checked the nut, did you wind the string on the tuner properly? What kind of strings are you playing, maybe it was bent?

i dunno...it seems wierd that only the 5th fret is affected.like u said^ a lead would probably affect the whole string...i would probably phone a guitar shop, or guitar center ect...ask them about it...the only thing that is coming to my mind right now is fret problems,but im no pro...lol

lionmute sounds lie hes onto something...neck warpage seems reasonable or something wrong with the string...

well, take a mental test of why a neck would warp...have u left it in a garage, let it change temp. a lot...is it made of a high or low quality wood...like i said,im no pro,but im just throwin ideas out there

well my nut board was all screwed up and i just fixed it by hammering (with my hand not a hammer) it back in place but its still isn't working.
And it probably got hit or something....My brother has Autism so and sometimes he touches it and it runs hits walls and stuff. Thats how my acoustic broke. He stepped right on the neck and snapped it in half. ):
