when i play my strat, its making a wierd sound from behind the trem cover on open e, sounds like something rattling against the cover. i think previous owner blocked the trem, something to do with that?

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.

I don't think I've ever played anything in black walnut. It's a great ice cream flavor, so I assume it works well for a strat too.

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.
