It is difficult to diagnose a problem with only a description of a sound, but from what you described, it seems likely that the bridge saddles are the culprit. Are the strings properly centered in the string saddles? Are the saddles too loose? IIRC, that one has no tailpiece, but instead uses strings through the body. If so, are the metal ferrules properly seated - or perhaps missing, as they do occasionally fall out?

You might also want to check to see if the nut has become loose, too.

I'm having a similar problem - my LPJ makes a ringing noise when I play fast songs like Battery on the low strings. Happened after I restrung it, also upping the string gauge from whatever it came with (10s?) to 11s.
Same thing? (ps. not intending to threadjack, sorry if it seems that way)

When i changed the pickups i put the same string size back on and i bought it used from Guitar Center so I'm guessing the had everything setup right because i just changed the strings and it started sounding like that and thats when i started adjusting the height on the bridge.

Did you just put new strings on? Sometimes it takes a while for new strings to break in and lose that tinny metallic sound.

You might also need to raise your action.

I think is has something to do with the Bridge too when i turn off my amp and pluck/pick the low E "6 String" i hear kinda a ringing sensation any more ideas and thanks btw :P

Man, just take it to a tech... I tried to fix a similar problem and I just didn't have the brains apparently. Finally went to a tech and they fixed it in 2 seconds flat.
