Gibson Les Paul HELP !!

I bought a Gibson Les Paul classic today. The moment I plug in at home lots of “hum” coming out from amp, I change the cables, no luck. I changed the guitar and noise is gone. Plug back in les paul and “hum” noises come back. There was no problem in the shop though. Needless to say I am disappointed that I didn’t expect this kind of problem from USD 2000 guitar.
HELP PLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLEASE.

I am using Roland amp and GNX4 multi effect.

thanks

Re: Gibson Les Paul HELP !!

Return the guitar, change it for another guitar or get a refund, the ground lead must be unsoldered

I will speak to the shop tomorrow. The only problem is this is the last piece they have and I am afraid it works again when I bring back the guitar. Can it be fixed?

Fixing it will be no problem if they have a setup and repair guy.

Should be an easy fix.

All electrical problems can be fixed, and on a new guitar the shop should do it for you, no problem.

Don't let others around here fool you. An RG with an Edge and a thin neck won't sound the same as a Les Paul (or similar copy).
