I've never heard you guys talking about this or I missed it. My son had this on his guitar many years ago and I just emailed him to see if he ever found a fix. I was wondering if any of you have ever had this problem and what you did about it.

Haven't watched video. I have had it on a couple guitars. A tele and a squier fretless. I lowered pickups on both to solve problem.

Lindy fralin has 3 different curves for most of his single coils. Also have had Fred at Freddie's Frets set up all my guitars so I haven't had that problem. If I remember correctly Lindy has a video showing how to set up single coils and he purposely puts the pickup too close so you can hear the warble. Then he backs it off until it is gone and that's your height

Thanks. Will pass this info along. I guess he still has it and has learned to live with it. I know he did take it to a couple of techs at the time with no luck so it seems.

that was interesting, thx for posting

I always thought stratitis was when the tremolo warbled from hitting the strings too hard, I guess I was mistaken!

And I always thought that Stratitis was the strings choking out when overbending on a higher fret.

I've always just lowered the pickups; the cause is usually the pull of the magnets acting on the strings and changing the way that they vibrate.

If the issue is ghost vibrations from the springs in the rear cavity, I've seen lots of people wrap their springs in foam of out a scrunchy around them to deaden the springs.
