    String warble noise?

    I got a new guitar a few weeks ago and it has a weird warble sound on the high e string. This clip is the 3rd fret, 5th, 12th, and open on the high e. The second part is the same frets on the high b. How would I go about fixing this?

    How close is the pickup to the string on the high e side?

    Bit more info about the guitar might help people point you to a cure.

    That's a very nasty and weird problem. Is it just those frets or all over the fretboard?

    Is there not a "Dubstep Off" switch on the guitar? That may help...[/unhelpfulsuggestion]

    I'm not proud to say it but it's an Rg7321.... I got a really good deal and I've been gassing for a seven string as well as a project guitar. But to answer the questions it's all over the fretboard, the pickups are even and I can't find this "dubstep off button", I don't think they come standard on the lower end Ibbys. It's also happening with both pickups if that helps.
