I bought a new semi-acoustic guitar 8 months ago and it sounded absolute wonderful up until a week ago. I am experiencing that the high E string, and to a lesser degree the nearby B and G string, sounds horrendously when pressed and played on the first three frets. Making playing a D chord sound terrifying.
I've uploaded a small youtube video here, where you can see and hear what I am talking about.
I'm thinking that it might be that the string is digging into the nut and therefore is closer to the frets, but I am no expert. Unfortunately the store I bought it from went bankrupt, so I cannot ask them.
What is your take on this.
Thank you for your time.
