i searched and couldn't find anything like this.. i don't think it's my intonation, because the notes are all in tune above the 12th fret, but.. on the high e string, the 12th fret doesn't play at all. like, it sounds like a muffled 13th fret when i play it, no matter the tuning i'm in.

any suggestions? i don't wanna go messing around and fixing things that aren't wrong.
i play noisy hardcore in the vein of coalesce interrupted by lots of isis-esque riffage and ambience, with a healthy dose of screamo dynamics ala funeral diner. it even sounds good sometimes!

heighten that strings' action.
I can't stand watching people waste their money on horrible gear.

bring it into your local music store and get it set up. its the action, it's too low

right.

get a fret leveler block from a luthier site, perferably one that matches your necks radius so its easier and just do it yourself

thanks, i didn't think it'd be something easily fixed, so that's good, at least. it was just weird, because i let a friend borrow it for a while, and when i got it back a few frets wouldn't play.
thanks!


EDIT: fixed. the action was a little bit lower than how i'd set it, and, bot sure if this has any impact, but the high e string is now the same gauge as the b string, he must have broken it and replaced it with the wrong string. guess it's time to slap on a new set of hybrid slinkies.
