The locking nuts for the E/A and D/G strings are working fine, but the B/E string one, whenever I un-tighten it, it gives this loud *clack*. Any idea what's wrong? Is my neck possibly cracked?
#2
sure its not the string making that noise? my high e does that when i tune it sometimes
#4
maybe its from the pressure being released when you loosen it cause you tighten it a little when you tune with the fine tuners?

Lube the bolt with some graphite or WD 40 on a rag or something and see if it still does it. I know the sound you mean, you may just be over tightening it and it makes that noise when you loosen it, I doubt the sound is caused by anything "bad"

Thats no big deal, it could be that there's a significant tension difference on each side of the nut, and it'd equilized when the nut comes loose, clicking. Or a rusty nut, you never know.
