One noisy note (or a noisy bridge)

I hope someone out there might be able to help with a little problem I am having. I have a Jem BFP with all original parts...EVERY time I play the F note at the 13th fret of the high E string, ther eis a rattling noise coming from the bridge (though I cannot tell exactly from where, I htink it may be near the high E bridge saddle)...this never happens for any other note played....does anyone have a thought about what could be causing this, & how to fix?

Re: One noisy note (or a noisy bridge)

you'll have to pull the trem out, but check that the nut that holds the trem arm insert (underside of the trem) is tight......this will also allow you to check everything else.
