ok so the other day I was screwing around on my 50th anniversary American deluxe strat... and then I hit both the 16th and 17th fret on the A-string (standard tuning) and I get this WEIRD ringing noise... I just tuned it the day before so... can other users of Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster (50th anniversary edition) please help and try this on their own guitars...and give me feedback?

you do know people can play guitar before they join UG don't you?
at least i don't think jimmy page, eric clapton or jimi hendrix joined !
'And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.'

'You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You'll get the chance to put the knife in.'

maybe your guitar's action is too low. When you fret the 16th or 17th it's causing a harmonic off of the fret. I would just the A strings bridge height up just a hair to see if that fixes the problem.

do you really have a problem or do you just want to tell everyone that you have"50th Anniversary Fender American Deluxe Stratocaster"

Yea he has nothing better than show off. So let me ask you this why you wrote all your expensive gear to your sig then if it disturbs you when people say what guitar they got.

OMG, I got one too. Lay off the kid, he had a question. Sometimes you have to be specific with guitars to get the most accurate answers.

The Edge III tremolo on my 8 string is significantly different than one on any RG3xx series? By saying my Edge III bridge is screwed up, who would know which one you're talking about. You could also say the later 2008 and new 2009 Gibsons are different guitars and might require a different answer. Lets face it, with strats, there are enough variations to deserve a specific model. How many come with LSR roller nuts for instance? If I said mah nutz broke, how would I go about specifying that without being more specific.

No need to be a bunch of assholes guys.

Maybe a result of action being too low? not sure what you mean. Maybe try raising the action slightly and seeing if that helps. If its new, you might just need to let the frets "settle" a bit.
