    Is it more like a buzz?
    Sounds more like a high fret.
    Get a service tech to level the frets.

    i really don't know what's happening but it doesn't seems to be a buzz because isn't buzzing means the string hits the frets and make unwanted noise? my problem is the sound of string doesn't sound clear, fades away really quick...like 8sec.
    does this help? and thank you JMX for your help.

    sounds like a dead spot to me, i had a few on my Ibanez BTB along with some hot spots as well. According to most its a natural thing that happens purely because of the nature/construction of the instrument.

    I guess it's a dead spot. I had a Soundgear Ibanez (SR-1200) that was a dead spot monster!!! (but it was on the 5th fret of the G string)
