i was just playing around on my guitar, and when i try and play the fourteenth fret on my little e string, the sound goes up a tone and sounds the same as if you're playing on the 16th fret (sorry for the bad explanation). i'm not sure what caused this. could my neck have warped slightly? the strings seem oddly close to the neck. has this happened to anybody else? and how might i be able to fix it?

probably your string is tapping a fret slightly and making a harmonic.maybe action and neck warping.adjust truss rod and action
#3
your action's too low, and the neck is warped, so when you press down at 14, the string makes solid contact at 16 and sounds g# instead of f#. it's going to be a bitch to fix

moreso let a professional adjust your truss rod and action unless you know what you are doing

I have the same thing, 13th sounds like 14th, when you say "bad warp" do you mean its something serious, as in something that a regular ol setup at my guitar store wont fix?

ahhhhh. i've had this guitar for three years now. it's not that great anyways. i think i'm going to buy myself a new one rather than spending money to fix it. thanks for the advice everyone :]
