One of the nut slots could be cut a little too big. You can either replace the nut, up the gauge of the string so it fits it, or put something in the slot so the string doesn't rattle. I've seen people put a little piece of fabric in the slot to fix that problem.

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

What I've found actually works for me is putting a small piece of paper underneath the string on the nut.

Do the strings fit tightly in the nut grooves? It sounds like they could be loose or the grooves to big.
I haven't had the problem before but you could try changing the nut.

Edit: I guess putting something in the slot would be easier than changing the nut.

Gotta love how people post questions in threads and then just leave, never to be heard from again.

It might be rattling because the tuning job you did on it. Im not too sure how to explain this, so bear with me...

Check out the angle that the string makes from the nut to the tuning thing. if it is a really flat angle, it could be the string rattling against the bottom of the groove of the nut. In that case tune it so the string comes out lower on the tuning thing rather than higher up.

Sorry, I'm not big on explaining problems like this, but I had a similar problem. That's how I fixed it without replacing the whole nut. :p
