ok its just some of the notes on the higher frets arent coming out clear. some of the high notes arent coming out clear. you can only tell on a gain setting. playing on a clean setting you cant tell.

Your neck might need to be adjusted. Also, the frets might be measured wrong.

I'm not quite sure what your actual problem is from the description, though, so I could very well be wrong.

Lack of clarity?

well if this helps ill tell you. ok when i got it the guy obvisouly didnt know how to adjsut a tremelo bridge because it was recessed. well before i brought it up some of the frets actaully buzzed. well i brought the bridege out and retuned bla bla. and it got rid of the buzz. so that problem is fixed. but now i have a little problem with some of the high frets. some of the higher notes dont come out crystal clear. like i said. you would have this problem on a cheap guitar. the higher notes dont come out clear. they come out almost sound out of tune thas the only way i can explain it lol.

It really just sounds like the frets might need to be fixed up. If the guitar is in tune, the high notes should play in tune, assuming they're not actually buzzing anymore. The one thing I can think of that would affect that is the space between frets. If they sound out of tune, my guess is the fret just isn't where it should be.

Of course, I'm no professional, so once again, I could be completely wrong and there could be some completely different explanation for it. That's just what I'd think is going on.

What's kind of throwing me is that you can't tell on a clean setting. Are you sure? Have you used a tuner to make sure those notes are in tune? And what are you using to produce that gain? Is it a pedal or the amp?

Intonation perhaps?

Have you tried through a different amp at all?

'Cause so far, I have no ideas other than what I've already brought to the table.

Do you actually get a note when you play those frets? Or is it more just a "clunk?" I'm assuming you do get a note, but it's out of tune regardless of whether your guitar is in tune. That's how I'm interpreting your description of your problem.
