Purchased new and am finding that I realy like it but it has a rattle from the pickup switch where it is under warranty but I would have to ship it away for a while is there a quick fix to my rattle problem. Another nissue I found right away was the cord jack was loose which I carefully tightened as to not mark the guitar or scratch????

My primary guitars are Fender Stratocasters and they're pretty well known for having little things come loose with all the screws and hardware attatchments to pickguards.... So, what I usually do for the input jack problem - take some super glue and put a drop on the nut or the shaft of the jack and screw it down. This holds the nut in place. For the switch, it may be the same problem. There could be a washer or something loose underneath the switch... I'd say unscrew the switch and pull it tight, then tighten it down again. If that fixed the problem, maybe dab a drop of superglue on there to hold it tight

Be careful with the super glue though... it's not friendly to guitar finishes.

I have the same problem with my Strat, the jack screw eventually comes loose. You'd think Fender would have fixed it by now?

loctight makes diffrent strength mixes that will allow you to choose to make the nut attachment permenant or just secure, depending on the solution you choose to use.  You might need to change that plug jack some day.  It will also not stick to your fingers.
