ok guys
i got an ibanez like a month ago ... and the problem is that for the past 3 4 days the first 4 frets on the D,G,B,e strings are not givin the real sound ... is it because of the strings ?! i mean am constantly broke and i haven changed the strings since its arrival except the high e string ... or is it a fretting problem ?! more importantly, how can i solve it ...
in my past i had a yamaha acoustic and same problem occured ... someone told me it gets fine overtime ... but y does it happen to me ?! how can i solve it ?! do i have to change my ibanez neck or something ?! or it will get fine as time passes by ?!

get new strings, change them often
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

What model Ibanez is it?? when you play it does it buzz on the particular frets?
1. give the strings and frets a good clean...lint free cloth..
2. check the height of the bridge..the strings could be catching on frets higher up the neck..if thats the case raise the bridge a little...then check if its fixed the problem..if not do it again.
But i think your problem maybe that you have unlevel frets..Frets are not on a level plane (one or more is too high or too low.)..the only way to fix this is to secure them properly, level and dress them or replace them altogether.

I had my stock Ibanez GSA60 strings in for about five months (bad idea, but just saying, it's probably not the strings.)

I think this problem is definitely coming down to the action. Raise the strings, just as the others have said.

hi again, your best bet dude is to speak to this friend of yours and get him to look at your guitar...if he's confident in doing it then proceed! I myself would never put any tool to my guitars neck... send this guy a message on his myspace telling him the problem, he's quality: www.myspace.com/edsshed

TS, try adjusting the action on the guitar. Look this up somewhere, or use the searchbar on UG.
