So here I am trying to learn the Seize the Day solo and I come to a part where I have to bend and keep it bent for a bit. I noticed though. I CAN'T BEND ON MY HIGH E STRING.

When I try to bend the string as high as I need to all sound from that string completely stops...help?

I would have thought that BC Rich had a flat enough Fingerboard radius that it wouldn't fret out.

Check your pickup heights; if the string is touching a pole-assuming your pickups are open-when you bend it the sound will be muted. One of my friends had a guitar that was like that and I had to adjust it for him.

could possible need your guitar set up, the string is probably touching a fret higher up on the fretboard when it's bent.

Hmm...

My string isn't touching anything on the pickup.

try raising the action slightly

Something like that happened to me before. Try raising the action just a tad. It worked for me.

With your guitar, im not sure. Lemme just look into for a sec.

EDIT:
I looked at a picture. Twist the screw on the bridge so that the bridge rises. More specifically, twist the screw on the same side as the High e. This should do it.
