Bad harmonic with string bends
I'm playing a newer Strat - maple neck, medium frets, fresh strings and good basic setup. When bending notes on the high E string on the 12th fret or above, my middle finger tip (which I'm using to fret the note) picks up the B string on the way up. This normally is muted and causes no problem. On this guitar, the B string is adding a weird harmonic as it gets "involved" in the E string bend and it's driving me crazy.
Is this just a matter of wearing in the frets? Or do you think something else is going on? I don't notice this happening on my other guitars.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
