Yeah it had quite a bit of relief before so i left it as it was, it's pretty flat now.
I want to loosen the truss rod a tad but really can't be assed with restringing that bloody thing again today......

Relief adjusted and still no joy with the rattle. Everything else is good, it's playing pretty nicely now and holding tuning much better with the 9s on there. Starting to wonder if it's a issue with the E string rather than the fret as the fret looks tidy and it's all level. If I bend the A up to that same area that the E is rattling on there's no problem there either. Maybe I put a kink in the E string while I was battling with stringing up the Bigsby for the first time and that's the cause. It wasn't rattling at all with the old .52 on there.

maybe the string is bad, but also, roughly how high is the action?

looks great

I'm thinking the low E is around 6/64" at the minute, I can have it quite a bit lower and everything else is very playable except that 5th fret. High is about 4/64"

that's pretty much normal. i guess try replacing the string - can you actually see anything wrong with it around the 5th fret?

is there enough relief on the bass side of the neck? because sometimes one side will have more than the other.

Yeah relief looks right on to me. There does look like there could be a bit of a kink in the string right on that fret but it could easily be my imagination. I'll have get another set of strings and switch it out. Frustrating though...

I shimmed the neck yesterday, wondering if I did too much. Before it was flat and you literally couldn't set the saddles low enough with the bridge flat to the base plate without the strings touching the sides of the bridge rather than the saddles. Now I've got the bridge raised up a bit and the saddles up fairly high too. Can't see this as a problem though, can you? Intonation is good.

nah it shouldn't be a problem. I couldn't get the action how I wanted on one of my guitars with the bridge flat against the body, so I had a shim added, and now the bridge is set a fair bit higher, yet the action is a bit lower.

this was with a really thin shim - about the thickness of two pieces of paper.

Try replacing the string next. I've ruined a few strings (especially the wound ones) when taking the neck off to adjust...and sometimes you don't get it right the first time and have to do it all over again

Yeah, I hate wasting strings. At least with these vintage tuners where you slot the first part down inside you don't end up with a string too short to wind back on after you take them off.
