I just got my second guitar for Christmas. It is a Fender Stratocaster standard MIM. There is a rattling sound on the 14th fret of the E and A strings. Can someone is explain what is wrong and how can it be fixed?

Do you hear it trough your amp or..? I think it might be your action or intonation

Nope i can hear it without the amp.

Well, if you don't hear it trough your amp it ain't TOO big of a deal imo.. I'd try set it up / Get it set up by a tech if I were you.. It'll improve the playability for sure and you'll instantly know what caused the problem too^^

I still think it has to do with your action/intonation, even though i find it a bit weird it's only that single fret causing problems... Maybe your fretwire is sticking out a bit too much or something?

it`s just a bit of fretbuzz, try raising the action, and check the neck relief as per jenny`s(jj165) method in the setup sticky

Thanks for the help guys. I'll be going to my music store tomorrow to get it setup.

hey TS, i understand that it's probably too late, but you might just need to raise the string a bit.

and not at all if the buzz is not transmitted thru the amp.

a tiny allen wrench, used on the pegs located on the front of each saddle, will raise and lower the string.
