yep, and everything is tight. the sound is definitely coming from the trem side of the guitar. i forgot to mention that when i hit the g string, it seems to vibrate the whole body of the guitar way more than any others. you can really feel it in the body of the guitar when you hit the g string
Some blocks of wood will vibrate sympathetically with different frequencies, that's nothing to worry about. My RG520 likes D quite a bit, and my RG550 likes B, wood is a funny thing. :-)
When you strike a string and can here the buzzing, put your finger on each saddle and see if it stops, if it doesn't stop when you put your finger on the saddles, try pressing on the saddle screws(for the lock-blocks). Still can't stop the sound? Remove the back cover and see if the ground wire is vibrating on the springs . . . not it?
Keep going, when you can hear the rattle press on anything and everything you can think of that could have come loose, even the output jack. Check the stud-locks, see if one is loose, check the screws that hold the block to the trem plate, if one is loose it will rattle, while the other two will hold tight enough that there will be no problem with tuning . . . so on . . . so on . . .
Since your guitar vibrates quite a bit in sympathy to the G string it could be anywhere on the body, even a loose pot. These things can be a little hard to track down, but if you're persistent you can eventually find it.
