Thread changed on me, fix my Strat

Okay, I was planning on selling my Strat, but maybe you guys can fix it. I have a Strat that sounds wobbly and just bad. I've tried the truss rod, pickup height, action, and string gauge. I have a clip for it, and I'm hoping something like new saddles can fix it. Here's what it sounds like.

I think what you are hearing, is what a guitar sounds like?

I knew I should have recorded the other strings for comparison...

Maybe you just need to change strings.
Try that first.

I've tried different strings and gauges. The smallest gauge I've tried is a 36, largest is 62.

What amp are you playing it through ? Have you ever considered to think that maybe that could be the problem and not the guitar itself ?
