You know how some guitarists shake or bend the neck of their guitar when playing a chord or note in order to add vibrato in a subtle way? Well my guitar does that when I am not intending to do it, causing whatever I am playing to sound slightly out of tune.
It’s like the slightest amount of pressure one way or the other while I am playing chords causes drastic vibrato effects to the notes being played. The lower/closer to open strings, the more pronounced/worse it gets.
How do I fix this? Is it normal? Am I just being overly picky? I don’t ever remember this being an issue on any guitar I have owned in the past, then again, all on my past guitars have had a polyurethane coat on them/the neck and this one does not. Is that a factor? I know it has a rosewood fretboard as opposed to mahogany like all my past guitars.
Even while doing my best to keep the tension of the strings in A neutral position seems near impossible while I am playing. And now that I have heard it, I cant un-hear it. It’s driving me crazy! Any wisdom/advice would be welcome.
