14th fret problem.

Recommended Posts

I got a cheaper electric guitar the other day, and everything seems to work pretty good (just need it to practice on) except for the 14th fret. This give little/no ring when I pluk G-B or LowE. The lower notes will ring (highE-A-D) but not as clearly as they do on other frets. Guess the queston is, is it possible I have a "bad" fret? Or more likely the screws/joining of the neck to the body that is causing it?

If I can fix it myself I would like to, in the case I cant I believe I can return for a replacement.

Thanks,

Tom

Returning it is the simplest option. Did you have it set up? The truss rod may need adjusting. Check some of the stickies in the Tech Forum.
