New SG - Static Need some help PLEASE!!
Posted 20 March 2012 - 01:44 AM
I'm having some trouble with it though. I'm getting a lot of static from the back of the guitar, specifically around the plate that is over the electronics. It is causing some pretty crazy crackling and popping whenever I move even a little bit. I did a good amount of troubleshooting and have isolated this problem being from this point. I took all of my pedals out of the chain and went direct in on my amp. Still did it. Tried it with five different cables. Still did it. Tried my other three guitars with multiple cables straight into my amp. They all were fine.
I went to Guitar Center and I checked out about 10 other Gibson guitars. Almost all of them did it as well. This kind of tells me that this is a common, if not, "known issue" with these guitars. Has anyone here had this problem and/or know of a legit fix for it? I have an email in to customer service. I'm really hoping that I can get this fixed because this is the guitar that I want to play! I love the feel and tone of it. This static is ridiculous though!!

Mostly, I just need to know if others have had this issue and more importantly, what the actual fix was/is.
