Change strings, that means they are dirty.

Fender Ultra-Chorus Amp
Wipe down your strings after you play and make sure you clean your hands BEFORE you play. Its skin and dirt from your strings.
I put a new set of ernie ball 'flats' on my p-bass this week they had a black coating on from new i cleaned them with wd/40 they are now clean+shinney................
