this top E string rattles and buzzes when play it open or a single note. its strange as all other strings are clean sounding. if i tighten top E string it goes from E to Esharp lol thats no good yea.

What kind of bridge does your guitar have? Your problem would be easiest to fix by raising string height, but not all bridge types allow you to do that.

You could raise the whole bass side a little, which should help, but it could throw off your other strings a little.

You could also use the next gauge up in strings, again should fix your problem, but could potentially cause problems for your other strings.

hey im not that advanced but when u say 'adjust action' is that the part down below the pickups with allen key screw and the 6 square blocks (1 for each string) that u can move back and forth? i never touched that yet u see. hey man i got tremelo but not the double locking one, just the strat style tremelo yea.

Adjusting the action could mean a couple things. You either adjust the truss rod, or you move the saddles down at the bridge.

In this case, you would be adjusting the string's saddle at the bridge. Tightening the tiny allen screw will raise it; loosening it will lower it. Just adjust it until it sounds and feels good.
