Had this on a guitar before but I get it on my newer one as well now.

If I apply slight pressure to the rear of the bridge the rattle goes away.

I have an Ibanez GRG 170 DX (Jewel Blue).

Any suggestions?

make sure the strings are properly lodged in inside the hole on the trem unit and the saddles are properly in place.

unplug the guitar and shake it. if it rattles, touch different parts until u narrow down the loose one. once u do, repost.

Hmm I think it might be the strings hitting the metal parts on the frets.

Thanks for the replies!

the metal parts of the frets ARE the frets. raise ur action.

is that a strat type bridge? if so then use a tiny allen wrench, two pegs per saddle, need to be lowered to rasie each string.

turn the right one a little, then turn the right one the same amount. it's not hard.

It doesn't really matter if they're a little bit lop sided.

Floating bridge, doesnt have individual action adjuster. You'd need to adjust those 2 big allen head screws that's supporting the bridge.

Ah, I've got the same guitar as you.

It's probably just fret buzz rather than a part of the bridge actually rattling. If this is the case just take it for a service. It'll cost about 20 quid, which is no big deal if you can save yourself a nagging problem.

It's a nice little guitar once you've ironed out little issues like that. I'm currently doing mine up, changed the neck pup for a maple Swineshead Runaway and have just ordered a Dragonfly and a Warthog for the other positions. Added Strap Locks and am going to see how it plays from there
