I assume by "rattling" you mean "buzzing" of the strings. Looking at your description, I first would look at the straightness of the neck and then the ovealll setup of the bass. My belief is that a good luthier could sort these issues out to your preference quite easily.

Yes, thank You, Mr. Hall for the advice. That´s what I shall do. Usually I adjust my basses by myself but in this case I better let a professional do it.
The neck seems to be right, it has a light bow as it should and is not twistet. It looks like the second fret level is below the others because the "B" on the second fret of the A-String is slightly the same. Everything else is perfect on the instrument. The Problem might be already solved with thicker strings. For now I will hang on with the new strings that are on and see what happens when I change them.

Generally no bow, a straight neck is preferred (and possible) on a Rickenbacker. In your case, however, this might make the problem slightly worse.

A straightedge would be the proper way to confirm this.

Yes, that´s the way it should run. I don´t really know whats up with this bass but I know it sounds great and that´s all I want from an instrument. It´s even better than my beloved thunderbird which is saying something ;)
