View Full Version : My guitar neck is missing some notes. :O

I bought a used BC Rich Warlock Metal Master the other day. Everything with the guitar seems to be fine, but I noticed on the high e string, the 15th and 16th fret sound exactly the same. And also the 23rd and 24th fret are the same note. Why is this happening, and how do I fix it?

You got low frets on the 15th and 23rd, or high frets on the 16th or 24th.

You need to get your frets leveled.

I do some fret leveling in this thread. It is my bass, but it is the same for a guitar. I would suggest taking it to a tech, but at least you can see what is up.

Thanks rcole. I'll probably do the fret thing some time, but also I think my action was a little too low..and it was pretty low. I made it a bit higher, and the problem seems to be gone. But ya...the fret is still bad I guess.

RaIsing the aciton was a good solution.

I should have mentioned that.

I'm too qucik to want to pull out my fret file. :D
