Hi. I have a strat with a wilkinson trem which I made some time ago. The E1st string has developed a rattle all the way up ie on each fret , from about fret 10 and it even buzzes loudly on the very last fret. The string is not touching the end of the neck or the pickups. I have put plumbers' tape around every grub screw and thread I caN find gone up & down the neck with 600 grit , a stewmac fret rocker files etc etc - ie there are no high frets underlying the E 1st string. As far as I can tell the frets are seated well. I'm not sure where to look next. I think this has come on over time and indeed i'd swear on some days it's worse than others but that's a little subjective. Can anyone give me some clues and ideas on identifying the basic issue and fixing it please? All advice welcome. Thanks, Rob.
