    i have a little problem here.the notes on the higher frets of my Low E string are not ringing properly. to give a clear idea i have attached a very small file.

    in the file, there are 4 notes
    1>A string 21st fret-proper
    2>A string 23rd fret-proper
    3>E string 21st fret- not clear
    4>E string 23rd fret- not clear

    I dont think it is the string's problem since the notes on lower frets are sounding good.
    would be grateful if anyone can let me know the solution to this.
    thanks in advance

    Methinks the prob will be in the fact taht the frets may not be levelled evenly.
    Thats causing you to lose rining n sustain at selected few frets.

    Dont worry, it is very elemntary prob any luthier can fix. (even you can, but it comes with its own risks :grin: )

    can you tell me how to fix it myself?
    coz i have no faith in luthiers of delhi.

    actually all frets beyond the 12th are causing trouble.
