Re: shocking guitar...

To state the obvious...Sounds like you got a wiring problem either in the guitar or with your cable.

If you keep getting that thing up to 88 Mph, then the flux capacitor will generate the 1.21 gigawatts necessary for proper operation...

Re: shocking guitar...

I get the same problem coming from the ****y wiring from my ancient electric mistress. It's some sort of grounding issue + the fact it's a giant metallic casing. Makes my hands feel fuzzy after like an hour of playing.

I'm with AlaskaBat - maybe if I keep playing 18nps i'll shred fast enough to go back in time...

Check that the ground wire wasn't inadvertantly left off....
