The physics of unwound and wound strings on the electric guitar applied to the pitch intervals produced by tremolo/vibrato arm systems

Fig 2

Theoretical pitch deviations (in cents with respect to the pitch G3) as a function of θ (in degrees) for Fender Stratocaster with D’Addario EXL120 Super Light 9-42 strings.

Dimensions and variables are taken from Table 1. Equations used were Eqs (20), (24), (30), (31), (28) and (32). Dashed grey lines on the figure show the interval predicted for the 3rd string transposed by a constant number of cents corresponding to the relative tuning of each string when θ = 0.
