I don't hit it hard enough for my string doesn't rattle and my guitar still vibrates. BTW my guitar is a strat copy and i never got it adjusted for 4 years.

does the hardware vibrate or the body vibrate? If it's the hardware, check if some thing's loose. If it's the body, you are a complete and total idiot.

I guess it's something with your bridge then, what kind of bridge do you have?

that's called resonance, and usually it's a good thing, unless you start getting feedback because of it.

To (almost) everyone in this thread; grow the hell up. TS posts it vibrates to the point of it being uncomfortable. This is far, really far from normal.

To the TS, could you be a bit more specific? What exactly vibrates, and where? Does it produce sounds? Explain...

#14
I feel sorry for this dude.

Everyone else is playing him.

It is MEANT to vibrate. Vibrating is good.

Hmm I never had this problem with my strat bridge, perhaps you should loosen the screws with which your bridge is attached to your body a bit, I can't really think of anything else.

yeah if the body vibrates to the point of being uncomfortable that could mean that the body is too light, that happens sometimes with cheaper guitars (and hollowbodies) just strum lighter.

the lower half of the guitar vibrates. If I just play single notes it doesn't vibrate. But if i play 2 or more notes together it vibrates. It make a sound near the bridge, if i strum a chord real hard.

Is it more of a rattling than a vibration?
It may be that you have something messed up with your bridge. Or maybe some fret buzz? Can you be a bit more specific, or could you post soundclips?

Maybe you press the guitar too close to your body. Either that or you're playing like, naked or something...

Or yeah, with cheap bodies (like plywood or something) it may vibrate a bit much.

You do realise that if your guitar didn't vibrate it would suggest one of two possible things:

1. Your strings are in no way attached to the body of the guitar, thus making the body not really part of the guitar. In which case both you and your question would be invalid.

2. Your guitar defies the laws of physics, in which case you would also be invalid.

I'm sorry mate, but I have to say this: This is one of the stupidest questions I have ever seen asked on this forum. If you want to deny this accusation, learn to articulate yourself better to express the real problem.
#25
You mean that it has only started vibrating?

****, thats bad, they are always supposed to vibrate.


I would take it to a guitar shop and ask them to make it vibrate more, to cancel out the time when it wasn't vibrating. That MIGHT fix it.

Whoa, holy smokes your right!

No no no. .. I know how a regular guitar feels when its vibrating, but my guitar vibrates like a muther****er, and my thigh feel weird when i play.
#28
If the strings rattle then thats not good, but if the guitar vibrates then its not bad. Its supposed to.
#29
Wait, I found out that if I play an open D string, the whole guitar will vibrate like crazy , the other strings are fine and they don't cause the guitar to vibrate a lot. My low e makes my gutiar vibrate just a lil bit also.
#30
I dunno. Maybe you got a messed up guitar.
Take it to a shop perhaps?
