1st string (high E) on 1st fret don't ring out anymore.

1st string (high E) on 1st fret don't ring out anymore. 2nd fret ain't much better. 3rd fret and up sounds good. I put new strings on and that didn't help. The guitar is only 5 months old. Its an electric Ibanez Gio series. Thanks for any help.

swap the 1st and 2nd strings over and see if the problem persists.

Apols if it's a bit too obvious, but are the replacements a very much lighter gauge? I wonder if the new E is sitting so low in the nut slot that it's getting deadened. Probably a rubbish suggestion, but the D and G on a new bass of mine are a problem because of the nut being incorrectly slotted.
