Hello . . I've got a 2004 American Deluxe Tele which unfortunately suffered a fall from about 4 feet flat onto it's back. It sustained (no pun intended) a crack in the finish (along the back of the body) but nothing that went through to the wood itself as far as I can tell. Ever since this accident, I've noticed that the high E string doesn't seem to sustain as long as the other strings do. It sounds almost like there's a piece of cloth lightly dampening it whether it's played open or fingered. It doesn't seem to matter whether it's fingered high or low on the neck. I've changed the strings, adjusted intonation, string height . . . I'm at a loss. Any ideas out there? Thanks a bunch for reading and thanks in advance for your theories / suggestions.
