I'm a guitar noob, only been playing for 3 months. I changed the strings used some 11-48 slinkys and I'm getting some rattle from 6 - 4. I thought I did every thing right and everything looks good, does anyone know what it might be or how to troubleshoot. Thx.

If this is a higher gauge than last time then you may need to raise the action slightly.

The action are the pickups right?


The distance between the strings and the fretboard.
