    What the flying FUCK just happened? My G/B/E string cannot do harmonics anymore

    I tried lower the action a bit today, and suddenly the G/B/E strings just fucking stops when I do harmonics.

    And YES I DID RAISE THE ACTION AGAIN! So dont ask if I reset my setup. I did!
    And the problem was STILL there. I raised it more than before, so it's unplayable at this action, but the problem still exists.

    The thick strings are OK

    I have replaced into new strings too, and still problem remains!

    Why!? I can't believe this stupitidy!!!

    I suspect Illuminate involvement.

    The reptilians have got to the string companies. We're fucked now. They're stealing our harmonics to open a portal to Nibiru.

    Maybe a sustain issue? Did anything weird happen to your nut/bridge?

    Did you raise your pickups when you raised your action?

    Have you checked the saddles? First thought is it's either a pickups too low issue or it's squelching out at the saddles.

    Needs a 1mm adjustment and you're good.
