Estranged Reality Posted June 1, 2012 Share Posted June 1, 2012 Okay, so I've had this guitar since I was about 13 or 14: https://www.google.com/search?q=aria+pro+ii+rs+stray+cat&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-aFirst of all, any guitar aficionados out there - do you think this is a decent guitar? I couldn't find much info on it and I'm not advanced enough to be able to look at something and be able to tell if it's any good.The reason I ask is, I've just started playing again for the first time in years (and I was never that great anyway - piano was my talent) but I noticed that when I try to hit strings on higher frets - like maybe around the 15th fret upwards - they don't seem to really make any sound, it's like they're immediately stifled. Especially if I try to bend a note, it just doesn't sound good at all. Do you think I need new strings, or maybe a specific setting on my amp needs to be changed? I'm just curious because I'm trying to learn some guitar solos and as soon as I get to those higher frets it's like I just get a tinny sort of noise and no matter how hard or lightly I press on the strings it doesn't seem to help. Total newb question probably but figured I'd ask. I'm also curious to see if anyone recognizes or knows anything about my guitar since it is apparently from the '80s and not exactly a popular model - the only stuff I could find about it is that it's a bit rare.
