What the **** is wrong with this string?!?!

I recently finished putting together a Strat...rewired the circuit, upgraded pickups, custom neck, switched bridges, etc.

Something is WRONG with the low E string. It sounds like it's producing two different frequencies that are just a few cents off, producing that out of tune "flutter" sound. Is this a phase issue?

Take a listen...

unless your neck pickup is so close the magnets are about to touch, that there is a bad string.

Right you are sir...pickups were way too close. I never realized the true measurements of single coil pickup heights.

Thanks!
