JayOhh Posted December 27, 2011 Report Share Posted December 27, 2011 So I got myself the Alex Lifeson Axcess for christmas. And was thrilled about my new guitar. Looks perfect and sounds sweet. I was playing it for a few days on my small Marshall amp, and had no problems what so ever. But yesterday, when I hooked it up to my Mac ( via NI Audio Kontrol 1 and guitar rig 4), I got this loud buzz/humming. Sounded like a ground problem to me. So I changed my cable, but still the same. So then I changed guitar, and with my other guitars, its dead silent. When my AL is plugged in, most of the sound goes away when I touch any metalpart on the guitar, or if I plugged another cable from the second jackoutput to my amp. Ohh yeah. And all these sounds, are still there even if I turn all the volumeknobs on the guitar down. So I went over to my local shop today, to get it sorted. Didn't have the same problem there, but if I touched the strings and at the same time, touched the "metal" desk besides me, it would make that sound again. They wasn't sure if it was anything wrong with the guitar. But they were very busy, so they told me to bring it back in january, and we would contact the importer. So I brought my guitar back home, and amped it up. And it actually produses some noise on the amp aswell, even with all the guitars volumes off. So whats wrong with my guitar. Sucks to pay $4-5000 for a guitar, and it doesnt even work. And its one of those small bugs, that may not be noticable on another setup ( like in the store ), so others might think its my computer or something. But I have tried with three other guitars, and they're all fine. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
