Les Paul resonating issue?!?!?!?

Hey my les Paul custom reacting kind of funny. It's seems like the high E string and B string are not resonating properly. It is not fretting out not touching the pick up. Nothing obvious that is really jumping out it is strange. Just seems like its kind of lifeless. Does anyone have an idea of what it could be? Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks in advance

I would check the bridge first. New saddles may help, if not you still may have the dreaded les Paul hump. More often this happens on the bass side but it happens on the treble side as well. The body wood absorbs moisture at a different rate than the neck wood and a hump develops on the fretboard above about the 16-18th fret. It an usually be fixed with a fret dressing, crowning, polish.

I looked at it so long my freakin eyes went crossed last night. There doesn't seem to be a hump. But I'm thinking there may be something to having the frets leveled and gone over. Also a wilkinson roller bridge.

I just changed them. I change them every 2 weeks. But I did just go back to Ernie ball 9-46 from the cobalt 10s. The cobalt strings are some seriously high output strings.

Check the nut for pinching, and lower the pickup heights. Magnets do weird things to light strings. Put some 11s or 12s on there.
