So I just bought a Squire Telecaster Custom, and I love this guitar alot . Anyways, the high e string when I press down on the first and second fret gives me a real rattly sound and same goes for the b string. I think the problem is in the nut, but I'm not sure and don't wanna try to fix anything without knowing.

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post was this or electric guitar and I decided on this, thanks for you help

adjust your saddles up for the strings until they stop rattling

either is fine, just not both.
and this forum has more people visit it that are good at the technical aspects, so i think you made a better choice.

it sounds like your third fret is a little high.

increasing the height of the saddles will get rid of this, but the action will be higher than it could be, if the fret heights were all in line.

read about fret leveling and crowning.
if you think you can do this, it will improve the "playability" of your guitar.

if you don't want to do it yourself, ask a luthier for an estimate.
ask the total price for upgrading the nut to bone or tusq, or a graphtech and the fret leveling and a set-up (trussrod adjustment to get the optimum relief, saddle height for lowest action without buzz, and intonation adjustment). if it's a price you're willing to pay, the improvements could be amazing.

Cool thanks for the info, i'll get working on it I just adjusted the saddles and it helped, action is a bit high for my liking but i'll fiddle around with it and get it where I like it.
