So on my guitar (Strat style tanara with regular strat tremelo and tuners) when I play almost any note on any string but the high E they sound out of tune and phase, but this happens when its just one note played alone, so I get that wavering sound if I play a note. I've had this guitar for years (almost 6 or so) and this has never happened before, or else I never noticed it..... Could it have been knocked out of being set up or something? or maybe its just bad strings? (It does this unplugged as well, so its not the pickups) and it is really beginning to bug me when I solo and all that good stuff.. Thanks in advance

Naw like the out of phase sound when its out of tune but it is just on a single note rather than two or more so you shouldn't be able to hear that... Like when you play a chord and you got a note out of tune and it kinda fades in and out of phase..

Does it do this when you play open strings? by the way you describe it it sound like your guitar is out of tune, I'll give you some credit since you've been playing for years and wonder if it's an intonation problem.

Well, its not out of tune, because I tune it and it still does it. And it does it with just single notes and usually you can't hear when just a single note is out of tune by the phase.... I can tell its not out of tune, and it does do it on open strings but not too bad, I think I might replace the strings, they might be getting too old and gettin all messed, and if that doesn't work I will look at new saddles, and if that doesn't work... Lets hope that works...

It sounds like an intonation problem to me...because I had the same problem less than a week ago until I adjusted the intonation.

I actually posted about the same problem earlier today!

First of all make sure the strings are in good shape.

It could 3 things

1) Bad intonation (the fretted note is different than the string harmonics so they phase in in and out making single notes sound out od tune similar to a out of tune power chord)
2) Pickups could be too high causing too much magnet pull
3) Tremelo could have weak springs causing the string vibration to actually pull the springs

Hmm I adjusted intonation and it didn't change at all.. so it wasn't that.. I will try new strigns and I got some extra springs so I will try those too... Maybe thats it.. sixstring did you fix your prob?

Sounds like intonation. I would reccomend getting a new pair of strings and then intonating your guitar.

What a tard...

Alright, I'll try that. Intonating it currently didn't work at all, so maybe new strings and intonating will do the trick.. If nto I'll take sixstring up and change the springs... Thanks peeps, once I fix it all I'll tell how it worked out..
