BC Rich Warlock Frets catch high E string

It sounds lie the frets aren't seated correctly. This will need to go to a professional repairman. It's too easy to mess your guitar up if it's done wrong.

This means the 12th fret is a bit too high. If you are not familiar with adjusting frets take it to any local guitar shop for repair.

I can't set my intonation on my 2012 fender american strat hss.i have done what they say to do but it doesn't help

okay first you must look at the frets if they are flattened out this is one reason and no matter what you do you will not be able to do it because the flattened frets are now making string contact further up in the scale length instead of in the center of the fret look at your string when you press it down it will be making contact on the very front of the fret making the notes sharp and driving you crazy with repeated attempts at setting the intonation you need a fret dressing if this is not the case and the frets are not worn but the strings are high off the fret board the neck relief needs to be adjusted to much neck curve upward results in higher string travel to be fretted which will add higher pressure to fret a note and making them sound sharp to check the neck take a capo clamp it at 1st fret now go to the fret where the neck joins the body and depress it count back to the halfway point and see how much space is between the top of the fret and the bottom of the string this should be around the eighth fret or seventh take a matchbook cover or a thin piece of plastic like a laminate you cover your pictures or documents with put it between the string and the fret the right height should be that it just fits between without moving the string once you've done this you should be able to intonate but please inspect all your frets first for flattening wear from playing if buzzing occurs after setting the frets in that are higher up the neck need to be dressed because they are not as worn as your regular playing zone which will make them a little taller when adjusting the truss rod do it 1/8 of a turn at a time do not crank it they are very sensitive to torque and the neck will bend backwards you must go slowly restringing and unbolting the neck unless your truss rod is at the headstock these are much easier but still require a little at a time 1/8 turns and patience good luck

6 th string 14-18 th fret buzzing coming out of the back of the amp reverb resonance presence all turned down brought it back where I got it they said it was all good

The problem MIGHT be with the guitar and this amp may be capable of presenting the sound from the guitar. Put a "fake fret" on the guitar... a piece of coathanger wire laid by the offending fret that will slightly raise the string for a test. Does it still buzz with the strings slightly higher, but at same tone... Note you might have to tune the strings SLIGHTLY with this fake fret to get on exactly the same pitch as using the normal fret... If the amp still buzzes with teh strings in no way creating the buzz, the problem is likely something in the cabinetry or chassis that is resonating at that pitch.

The problem I have with my music man bongo bass 4 strings,,, is that the string 4 at fret 5 sounds very strange as making waves, but it sounds good with the other tones, on the other strings when I play...

Check first it is not hitting or touching the next few frets, in case they are high. Or maybe the 5th fret is low. You could raise the action and/or adjust the neck relief to test this.

If it is not a fret problem, it may be a real dead spot on your bass. If so, it would be regardless of the pickup used and could be heard acoustically if you could hear notes that low easily. Most guitars have notes on the fretboard somwhere that are a little dead. It is due to destructive interference and there is not much that can be done. To happen at the 5th fret is unusual though. Make sure the string is wound properly around the head, and that nothing is loose and actually moving/buzzing when you play the note.
Other causes can be a loose fret, loose bridge parts or a loose neck joint.

My new Takemine cannot be tuned as the strings are laying flat on the 15th fret and just buzz out

Take it back to the shop where you bought it and ask them to set it up properly for you. It's an expensive guitar it should be supplied correctly set up.

B string flat up to 4th fret

You need to set the intonation. There are videos on Youtube on how to setup a guitar. Avoid doing anything to the truss rod. Search YouTube for "guitar setup". If it will not setup, you might need to replace the string.

I have a jackson dinky DK2. what is happening is that on certain frets, like the 13th, 14th, 15th fret on the 2nd string (B string),when playing with slight drive or distortion, the note does not sound...

The frets MAY be worn or the neck truss rod MAY need adjustment, Neither of these is DIY unless yiu have experience in repoairing guitars. Since this is only on the 2nd string, inspect the frets for wear and the only DIY thing to try is to replace that string... DO that first !!!

Buzzing of strings in frets up to fifth fret; seems that the bridge may be low but it's not. Also, too there is more gain in high strings than the fifth and sixth

Sounds like a warped neck, if the bridge isn't low what else would cause the strings to buzz.? With the gain problem perhaps the neck is twisted as
well as bowed. Epiphone are proving to be quite popular but they are built to a price and for beginners they are usually a good choice. Unfortunately some fakes of different guitars are sold on ebay and they often make better tennis rackets than a musical instrument. Unless you changed them the guitar usually has a cheaper Humbucker pickup. Check it's fitting anf make sure there are no loose parts or wiring sitting against the soundboard on the inside.

Try looking down the neck of the guitar and seeif you notice any warp or bend. Overtightening the strings can cause the opposite warp and the strings end up further from the frets. Also try some measuring. The distance between the any string and the fretboard starting at the nut and working down to the bottom of the fretboard. These measurements should be consistant
Also, check the nut to see if the grooves aren't too deep. This could cause buzzing by allowing less distance between the string and the first fret.

Make sure all the frets are seated correctly and not slightly out of kilter at one end.

That should give you enough to keep you busy for a while. There are plenty of reasoins why a string will buzz. I've covered a few mecanical ones but without sounding rude there are also player caused buzz. Depressing the string too far behind the fret can cause it whereas too close to the fret can kill the note. But that's not my field in this situation. Check all the above and then try your fingering. One way or the other that buzz will stop. The best way to check if it's you is to get someone else to try your guitar out and see if the buzz buzzes off :-)

good luck

No notes on my guitars e string will bend

Have a look at the neck part where the strings move through that aligning unit which has the 6 slits cut into it where the strings goes through at the top of the guitar neck.

What usually happens, the slits get worked out, thus the strings move fractions closer to the fret board which will result in a muffled sound if you press down on the string you get a fret buzz. This happens when the string touches the fret board on more than one spot.

When you play a solo you can get a muffled sound out of certain strings. This happened to me, i just replaced this unit, very cheap, and all was fixed. Hope this can work.

Best regards
