Trouble shooting buzz

    I assembled my newly refurbished Tele. It's got a Bigsby B5 with modified Wilkinson bridge and compensated saddles. Used a Stew Mac double action truss rod. This is my first guitar with a Bigsby, so I'm not sure what's normal in terms of noise and function.

    I find that there's an annoying metallic buzz, mostly on the high E. I've tightened every nut and screw. It's not fret buzz, as it happens pretty much on all frets and when open. Truss rod adjustments and raising the action has some effect but doesn't totally eliminate it.

    Any thoughts on what I'm missing?

    Nevermind. I found it. A pickup mounting screw and spring came loose. Guess I hadn't checked all the screws after all.
