EJ200 CE Pickup Crackles!

Recommended Posts

HELP !!! my beautiful EJ 200 CE has started crackling !

At the moment it basically cant be played, ive tried a different lead to illiminate that, still the same.

Ive moved the blend right to the other side and seems to still be making the noise, suggesting its on both pickups!??

 

Only this 2 years, but lost my warranty details etc, anyone got any tips,or is it bascially go to the guitar tech and pay to get it fixed

 

thanks scoff

Maybe it's only the pickups, or the wiring. On the pickups you have only 1 year warranty. The overall warranty period on the guitar is normally limited lifetime, if the guitar was distributed by Gibson Europe, and through an authorized dealer however, and if you are the first owner.

Yeh, the batteries a new one.

Also, I can't find my warranty etc, I bought this from a reputable dealer, but I'm in the UK, also, would I have to send the guitar the Gibson

in the USA to be repaired????

When my esonic began it's odd behavior, twisting the two wires running from the input jack end of the guitar (remove from plastic keeper posts, twist wires as much as you can without creating tension and reattatch at least one back to the post, the twists will keep the other in position. Use caution when removing wires from the post, I used a fingernail to expand the end to gently remove the wire, not jerk it out and risk damage to any connections.) Without the twists the wires running parrallel create electro-magnetic interference that does all kinds of strange things including crackling and humming.

Hope it helps,

I would swap guitar cables just to be sure it's not a cable gone bad. Did you try a different guitar into your amp with the same cable?

 

Good luck!
