Hey all,
i got a slight problem with the locking nut on my S470. Whenever i tighten it down, the low E string rattles on the 2nd or 3rd fret. It isn't normal fret buzz, as it doesn't effect the sustain at all, it just rattles. When i fret the string at all the rattle goes away. Any idea what the problem might be? Thanks in advance for any help.

Check the nut is the filed to the proper size so the string is seated correctly?
A guitar tech could tell you if it is or not if you ask.
I strongly recommend taking it to a guitar tech. Trying to fix it without knowing what the problem is could potentially end in disaster
