So every time i play any note on the A string of my guitar it has a vibrato to it, but ONLY through an amp. It seems odd that it would be through the amp and only on that string. Any suggestions for problems/solutions? its an Ibanez RG 250DX

no its straight guitar to amp. the A string and any note on it the pitch almost has a vibrato to it. it doesnt stay on one pitch. but only when its run thru the amp. there is no fret buzz either
im very confused

Your amp might not like that frequency. Try a new amp, see if it persists.

Edit: misread. Its probably a pickup problem.

So it happens on all of your guitars and all of your amps?

Its obviously the last variable then, the cable.

Either all 3 of the pickups have the problem (unlikely), you have some faulty wiring in the guitar, You are playing with bad technique, or you are on drugs and its a hallucination.

i dont think its the technique, its even like that open or with harmonics on it. i guess its just the wiring then. this is a recent problem tho so i have no idea what would have caused it. and im not on drugs haha

I mean, there are other variables that could cause this to happen, but I don't think any of them would only effect the A string.

Yeah i ditto the chorus thing.
G(g)od was like: "Make you an ark of gopher wood; rooms shall you make in the ark, and shall pitch it within and without with pitch."

And i was like: "What's gopher wood?"

I used to have the same problem with my high E string and after carefully inspecting the guitar I found out that the string wasn't settled in the nut like it should. The tension or something was causing the string to move to the side and therefore resonate uncomfortably. Check out your nut(s) and saddle thoroughly.

Yeah, I was thinking something along the lines of this, but then I don't know why he would only be able to hear it through his amp. Must be really subtle.

Yeah, I think the anomalous sound it causes is quite subtle, I was barely able to detect mine by ear.

Film it, upload it, then we can have a better look.

I was going to suggest that it was some sort of harmonic feedback caused by a frequency that your amp doesn't particularly agree with, but you've already discounted that. This is a very curious case.

ok. ill film it as soon as i get home, sorry i wish i could do it now i have a full day of classes today.

The only time I hear it is when you actually play a vibrato. :') Maybe you unconsciously do vibrato's some times on the upper strings. Or something like that. :P
