Dead fret

On my guitar, the 12 fret on the high E string is somewhat dead. You can still here it but it isn't as clear and it is pretty annoying. My guitar has a licensed floyd rose trem. Basically what I want to know is how I could fix it or make it better by myself cause I dont really wanna spend all that money to get all the frets leveled. Its only this fret that is fucked up. Any suggestions?

Hey!!.. Sounds to me like your pickups are raised too high..!
You'll have to lower them. If it's not that.....heh....
Your probably missing a spring inside...
That's all I can think of....

Since it's only the 12th fret on 1 string, I'd not think that it's the pickup height. Have a look at the fretboard from the side. If the frets are not level, you could get this problem. If it is this, then your best bet will be a guitar tech. You can DIY but it requires tools and experience, and if you had that you wouldn't have asked (not meant in a derogatory way, just a statement).

I got it fixed and it turns out that my frets were coming up and he glued them down for me. It only cost $25, so its all good now. And my guitar kicks ass now.
