I'm getting pretty hacked off, I have this strange string rattle on my Stingray 5 E and A strings, it's not fret rattle, it's something else, it's strange, because it some times goes away and then it's back. I used to only get it on the A string, but I changed strings to try and fix that. now it's on both, it's possible that I did something wrong when re-stringing, but I can't see what. I really need help, it's pretty much makes the bass unplayable

maybe when you restrung it, you did something to the nut.
with mine, i have a similar problem, and its because i accidentally widened the gap at the nut when i was restringing.
have a look and see if thats what it is.

You might have also not wound the strings low enough and theres not enough pressure to keep them solid in the slot.

same problem here. My bass came with a .110 Tapewound E string, and I put on a .105, now it rattles like hell whenever playing hard. Gonna take it into my local guitar shop and get them to sort it out.
