  1. Pickups & wiring
    Hello everyone, I've had my 2001 RG570 for a long time now and I've always had a bit of an issue with noise. The original V7 and V8 pickups have been replaced with a pair of DiMarzio The Breed pickups by the previous owner and I'm happy with how they sound. The volume pot has been wonky for...

    Hey all, been noodling on my JS2450 today and noticed when I reach for the trem arm as it rotates theres noise coming through the pickup like is grinding on something. I'm sure this happens on all Edge trems, but I'm wondering what the best way is to remedy this grinding sound. It's actually...

    Aloha gang- need a get some suggestions for low (or NO) noise chorus & delay stompboxes. I've got a 2210 Marshall head that does not like the Boss DD-7, or H20 Liquid Chorus, or the Boss Super Chorus. Hisses like hell, like a jet fighter taking off. These are all going in the loop. Had my...

    Hi all, I'm newly registered on Jemsite. I have an S570 which is set up correctly in terms of neck relief, action, etc. but it has a weird problem - the neck creaks whenever I use the whammy bar, up or down. From holding the neck, it feels like two or three loud creaks coming from inside at...

  6. Pickups & wiring
    On my 1995 Jem 7V WH when I close my hands to the strings, the guitar starts to produce noise (Like if it senses some sort of field). And if I touch the PU's poles the noise becomes infernal. The noise only occurs on the selected PU (no matter if it's the neck, bridge or middle PUP, although...

    I recently purchased a used rocktron chameleon from ebay. I like it alot. But it has a problem now. It just started a couple of days after I started creating a clean channel. Now if I use the on board chorus it creats this noise similar to fretbuzz with out it actually happening. If I mute...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    Hi, I just finished installing the Liquifire7/CrunchLab7 combo into my Sterling JP70 7-string with a push-pull pot to enable splitting of the PUs. I noticed when I switch on the bridge HB/CrunchLab (in humbucker mode, ie not split) there is a very soft humming noise coming from the amp which...

    Hello all, I am looking for your expert opinions to help me find my sound. I am not the smoothest player so a clean sound with sharp cutoffs don’t help me  I need something that will have some sustain to it to help connect those phrases together where technique fails me. After a bunch of failed...

    Has anyone discovered the source of zr2 trem buzz? I can't seem to determine whether or not it's the saddles, the hinges, or loose screws inside, but my guitar is brand new so I'm trying not to dissect it until I pursue warranty action. I've ruled out springs and the intonation screw. The worst...

    Hello all, I am new to this site and this is my first post or rather question :). I recently purchased a js2000 and noticed it's output is way hotter than my js1000. As if it has a booster or mellow overdrive built in. It's impossible to get a clean tone without pulling the coil tap up... As...

    I was on a different forum and I saw people saying they use upwards of 10 Noise Gates at a time. How many f**king noise gates do you need?!?!?!? Is there any advantage to having a ton?

    Hi, I wonder if anyone can help - I have an RG8320 fitted from the factory with active EMGs and a 9V battery compartment. Recently I've started getting huge amounts of variable loud noise when plugged in - as loud as the actually guitar tone. Sounds like whooshing wind effects rather than pickup...
