Whenever I play anywhere from about the 11th to 15th frets on the low E string on my guitar, it makes this loud, unpleasant sound that kind of swells. My guitar teacher said that it is feedback. The only way I can make it not happen is if I switch to the bridge pickup or turn the gain WAY down. I tried it on a different amp and it still did it. I tried moving farther away from the amp and it still did it. I have a Fender Strat. Any advice on how to make this stop?

Whilst playing, you'll need to mute any strings you aren't playing either with your picking or fretting hand (Picking hand is more commonly used). Get used to rolling down the volume knob while you aren't playing.
That's about all you can do apart from buy a noise gate for when you aren't playing.

Maybe your neck pup is to close to the strings? Try lowering it.

Yeah - Mute any string not being used, turn the gain down and try to keep away from the amp. That's it really.

^ +1 to everything above.

Also, watch where you stand in relation to your amp. If you're right up to the speakers, you'll feedback much easier.

Buy a BOSS NS-2 if you have lots of feedback problems, they're great.

Actually a while back I had the thing in the neck adjusted so that the strings are lower, could that have caused it?

Its possible. Just try lowering the neck pickup. Its something that you can do yourself without spending money, so I would try that first.

Also, check your bridge saddle. Sometime a loose saddle can bring a lots of unwanted noise.
