    MM wiring allows no hum prone coil combinations. Remove a PU and you could end up with hum.

    FWIW, I had a dead PU which was removed from my pre-EB Sabre and I later had it restored to spec. The tech is a very resourceful type, but he never asked me if it were neck or bridge. This suggests...

    An E string too high on the peg is not well pressed down into the nut, and the rattle is usually the string rattling in the nut. Same can be heard if a nut is cracked at the string slot.

    Either an expensive luthier job or a new neck from SBMM. Check both costs and choose.

    If you also needed a fret job, maybe a new neck is a better deal.

    Obviously I never use any lower notes cuz the B-string is deleted but I do agree that the more massive neck contributes to the tone, especially with FL.

    So why not just leave the B-string in...

    I disagree with that explanation.

    Relax the string tension and stuff some rags or foam between the PU and the strings. Then get into some PU scratching and body thumping.
