When I play chords or anything I get this feedback sounding ear ringing sounds from my b string, how can I fix this? Tryed putting sock above tuners and around the tremolo springs.

I get the same sort of thing on my MiM strata B string, I was thinking of getting a pro setup and seeing if that helped. I'm not sure, but on mine I think the sounds coming from the bridge.

Try lowering pickup height and see if the noise goes away - or if you pups have adjustable pole pieces, lower the poles for the B and A strings. Start with the bridge pickup. The magnetic field disrupts the natural vibration patterns of the strings - and can pull on the strings limiting sustain.

If the pickups are too close to the strings, some weird noises can be generated - sort of like a loud, clanky harmonic with little sustain. Even if nothing has changed in your setup, screws (or pole piece adjusters) can vibrate loose - or give way altogether. The first time I got the weird noise, a mounting screw became stripped from the wood and the pickup was actually making contact with strings. The second time it happened, I had just lowered the action very slightly, but it was enough cause the bridge pickup to be too close to the strings.

Could be that something on your guitar resonates at the same frequency as your B string?

I would think something like this. It's no uncommon. Just check all of the nuts and bolts in plain sight. If nothing is loose or vibrating, try letting someone else play the guitar and you going around it with your ear close to the guitar.

The claw/spring/trem cavity in my strat resonates on B. Much worse if I leave the cover on.
