    short answer---bridge saddles too low.
    Long answer--also check your neck relief (hold string at fret 1 and at last fret and check the gap between string and fret in the middle) this should be around the thickness of a business card . If this is excessive someone may have lowered the saddles to "lower the action" thus causing the problem above fret 13 without adressing the real issue of neck adjustment.
