ES345 Humming

Recommended Posts

I have started playing out at a jazz workshop and am noticing that my 2002 ES345 hums if I am not touching the strings.

 

It is plugged into a Henriksen JazzAmp using a good quality cable. And swapping the cable doesn't make a difference.

 

The pickups are not original. A pair more to my taste have been swapped in by a very good luthier.

 

Do other 345s do this? Is there anything I can do?

Maybe it doesn't know the words.

 

Seriously, it's probably a wiring connection problem. Take it back to the guy who installed the pickups - if he's the right sort, he'll fix it for no charge.

Maybe it's due to a badly grounded electrical circuit of the place you're playing in.

Nevertheless, if the noise appears everywhere you're playing you better take a look into the guitar wiring circuit, first at the ground of pickups.
