I had this same thing happen to me on my Floral.
The bridge was sitting too low in the cavity and was rubbing against the body.
I had to shim the neck slightly and raised the bridge about an 8th of an inch.

Then I did a complete setup and adjusted the trem angle/hieght.

Now there is joy in my life
