This is a bit embarrsing but anyway............... alot of the time when i go to do a wide vibrato on the high E string it slips off the fretboard making a weird noise. Its very annoying ! I konw people like Hammett do it on purpose sometimes but i dont. Any help?

bend the string the other way, thats the quickest and easiest fix you could get.
#3
Yeah, as jndietz said, bend, or atleast pressure the string the other way (which in your case of the High E String, bend or pressure the string upwards, and away from the edge of the fretboard).

It reminded me of a goose. But yeah, my ibanez does it. But my fender doesn't. Weird. It's quite annoying when I'm hitting a crazy solo that I need to do pull-offs on the bottom string with.

I get that from my guitar too but ive never thought anything of it. SO maybe just not so wide of a vibrato would help

trem vibrato or neck bending vibrato wouldnt hurt. Actually, bending the neck isnt such a good idea, but it works.

Do you have anything by the nut to hold the strings down? Im a noob but my fender is supposed to have a string tee and some other lil things to hold em down and theyre missing and my high e does that too .
