it could be a spring vibrating inside the cavity if it's still connected, or the loose trem claw if there are no springs.

take the back cover off and see which it is.

its coming from between the bridge block and the body. it still makes it if i put my hand on the springs to stop them from vibrating

so that takes the thought i had of "get new springs so everythings tighter" idea

edit: wouldn't the bridge not be flush with the body like it is right now if it was the springs?

Is the block touching the body?

Is it a 6 point trem?

Pics? Front and back please.
