Dead Fret

Recommended Posts

Just put some new strings on a jackson dinky. At the 17th fret on the high E im noticing a total dead fret. All other frets at the 17th position are fine. Im not getting any sort of sound out of it. Ive checked the fret to see if it was loose and I dont notice it being loose. The frets seem pretty even as well. I have some buzzing going on onther frets but the action is very low. Any ideas on what could be causing this and some possible solutions?

Did you use the same gauge? Did you change gauges?

You could try adjusting the Floyd's posts for a slightly higher action on the high E to see if that helps. make sure the new string is sitting as it should in the nut and saddle also. Sounds basic but you never know.
