Hey,

I think there's something up with my 2004 Fender American Stratocaster.

When I play it, inside, the springs that work the tremolo system vibrate and this sound is picked up by the pickups on the guitar. This makes a shrill squealing noise from the springs, that plays with the guitar...

It's not that bad, but I'd like it to stop. Anyone know what I can do?

Thanks.

Sounds like feedback to me. It tends to mean you are too close to the amp. :P

Yeah, because I can hear it when the guitar isn't plugged in, I still hear the springs resonating.

Then they are probably too loose. Take it to a music shop and see what they think.

No, it's not a ghost note, I checked that one. I think it's more likely the springs are loose. as blackandsilver said.

Thanks for the feedback. Does anyone else know of what this could be?
