2002 RG250: very noisy even after new electronics!
I have purchased a used 2002 RG250 made in Janap, SN F0214621.
The guitar is in good shape, has a Gotoh floyd rose and tuners, neck Duncan 59 with one braided connector, stock single coil middle and bridge Custom Custom with four connectors.
The guitar was noisy, specially when not touching strings. As this might be a grounding issue, I have disassembled everything, put new CTS 500k pots, shielded with copper tape, redone all wiring including the wire that goes to the bridge claws.
What I did not replace: Jack and switch.
The guitar is still noisy, loud hum when not touching the strings and a little hum when touching. To compare, I have a PRS SE that makes no noise at all.
So, could you guys help me figuring this out? maybe I need new jack and switch?
