Rg550 single coil pickup

Ok i just came mid jam-session to post this thread.

I was jamming and noticed that my single coil pickup on my RG550 20th buzzes a ridiculous amount. I dont know if this is normal, if its not normal is it something that i can fix by myself?

Sorry if this is a stupid question.

Re: Rg550 single coil pickup

Single coils generally have quite the buzz to them.

Is there another guitar you can compare it to?

Are you playing near your amp/computer/lights?

There are quite a few things that can interfere with single coils. And some can be more finicky than others.

I swore I had wired up a guitar wrong one time because I was getting a lot of buzz from the single, but that just ended up being the nature of the pickup.

Re: Rg550 single coil pickup

I do not have another guitar with a single coil pup in it.

The thing is that I'v never really noticed the buzz before last night. I could just have not heard it until tonight but im pretty sure i would have noticed it.
