seems to be alot more on the b string but it is on the others aswell, I have tryed tightening all the screws putting things around the strings before the nut (tho it is a locking nut and muffeling the springs and nothing help and I am worried it is the truss rod, luthier is away till tuesday.... (Anyone know a good luthier in the high point nc area?)

I can't really hear any ringing in the audio but is the ringing coming from the body? You said it's a locking nut and that leads me to believe that it is a floating bridge. Given that, I had a floating bridge that when I would play a note the springs in the back of the guitar would vibrate making a ringing sound. If this is the case you can take a small piece of paper, fold it up and put it in the inside of the springs. They also have springs on floyd upgrades that are specially made to prevent that but I don't see a point in springing money on it.

What do you mean by paper in the springs? I tryed stuffing a sock in the cavity between the springs and it didnt help?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJnAbPrmJNA This should explain what I'm trying to get across. It can be any material that will fit inside of the spring and dampen the vibration. try flicking your springs before hand to see how much they vibrate. it might not be the problem but it is worth the shot.
