Screeching

I have screeching when on high gain with my jem, its from 1990. What are the possible reasons for this? Do all guitars this old get screetchy?

Re: Screeching

What kind of screeching? Microphonic feedback?
Perhaps the pickups need to be waxpotted again.

Re: Screeching

Maybe just too much gain? What pickups are you using? For those players using EMG active pickups, never use lithium batteries as they will screech for no apparent reason(one reason I gave them up).

Sounds like they need to be repotted.

Re: Screeching

well what exactly is microphonic feedback... i think thats what you would call it but, its the kinda screech that when you turn the volume knob up and if you not playing it it will screech like a dying monkey. only when you not playing.

I am not using a noise suppressor and I do not have to much gain.

I'm disappointed that I have to re-pot Is this common for ibanez's this old to have to be re-potted at some point?

Will guitar techs do a re-pot? I tried it once and the pickups turned out like crap. I'd rather not screw up my beloved PAF pro's

Send them to DiMarzio for the potting.

That's a question to ask DiMarzio. Check their website to see if they have constact info.

Re: Screeching

Just turn the gain down! Pickups only 18 years old shouldnt need re-potting. How close is the guitar to the amp, what amp, what effects etc?
