Default Buzzing X20 when playing B and D

Just got my X20, love it, but after a few hours of playing, i'm not sure if something's come loose or what, but whenever I play a D or a B, Drop D, or D or B string, or second fret on A, i hear a buzzing from inside. I've tried to isolate it and I just can't seem to! Anyone else run into anything like this, Sean, anything from Emerald? Thanks, Andy

Definitely not a buzzing tuner on the head stock? Happens to me. Rattling pick up wires/bits? Could be something sympathetically vibrating with those frequencies.
Or maybe dodge strings (although I'm guessing they are new).

Anyway, good luck with your search.

Found it! It's actually the back of the A3T preamp, just the metal vibrating, now i just need to figure out what to do about it...

Actually just kidding, that was some of it but there's a pretty nasty buzz when i play certain notes, gets worse if i pick closer to the saddle and make the notes harsher. Is the saddle not seated quite right? I've grabbed everything inside the guitar and can't get the buzz to stop
