Hello. I need some help with my guitar. Anyway whenever I set my guitar to a clean setting it sounds fine when playing lower register notes on strings such as low E and A strings. But when i play really high stuff, like notes after the 12th fret on the B and high e strings the notes sound very quiet without changing the volume and the guitar or amp ect.

An example would be playing the second solo on "One" when Kirk Hammett is on a clean setting and starts tapping.

Could be bad pickups?
The strings might be further away from the pickups on the higher strings?

Just guesses

What kind of guitar? For that you need some gain. Try adding a bit of overdrive/distortion and cranking the gain a bit.
Ibanez ARC300DVS plugged into a Valve Jr. with a 1x12 custom Ear Candy cab and a blues driver. (Too many guitars to list.)

its a les paul, not an sg. and the line 6 shouldnt be doing that, as bad as they are, they have no problem with things like that, its just tone thats their problem. thats another battle though.

try using a diffrent pickup, raising your pickups, or getting new ones. its either a pickup problem, or an action problem. or try new strings.

Thanks UG for the quick replies btw!

On a second note: I've had the stock strings on for over a month do you think i should change them? Im kinda noob at guitar tech stuff. (ive got some extra ernie bal slinkies to put on the guitar if need be)
