horrible sound on high E on S320


This is something I've only noticed recently, or it's only started occurring recently. What do you reckon it is, poor clamping at ends, poor action or old string? On all the other strings it's ok.

One of your frets has probably popped out a bit, which is causing your string to fret out. They sell special types of hammers that are meant for guitar frets. If you are uncomfortable fixing it yourself, take it to a guitar tech.

Yeah I'm basically gonna take it for a full set up as well when I get new pickups installed. As long as he can fix it, that's the important thing, though he charges 30 extra for doing anything with the frets if I recall. Will be worth it, I suppose. Shame I've got expensive taste in pickups
