Someone that knows how all the electric wonders inside my guitar work get on chat!!! plz.. lol

ok.. its been 2 mins and I impatient.. I just tell you peeps here whats wrong.. I recently rewired the jack wires on my guitar.. they got twisted up and broke, but were too short so I used doorbell wire, soldered together with the old wire, and shazzam! worked wonderfully besides the two burns on my finger and the bottom of my foot.. (dont ask). But anyways.. I'm home for spring break and I finally hooked it up to my big amp instead of my mini cube. Im getting some really bad buzzing now... and it only goes away if I touch some metal on my guitar, ie. the jack or the strings. I don't know much about electronics but this means something isnt grounded right??? also, could it be my amp? I noticed Its buzzes softly when I turn it up past 5 with nothing plugged in, and I can't remember if it did this before.

Grounding. Check the cables you soldered, the ground cable seem ill. And wear thick boots while soldering laugh.gif

Did you solder you ground cable to the metal hardware?

This sounds really bumb but, when I rewired mine I got static and buzzing too and realized I hadn't pushed the jack in all the way. Otherwise it's probably a ground issue. Ofcourse I didn't solder it with my feet so that may have something to do with it too.

If the wires going to your jack are black and white, the black is the ground. The door bell wire may be the prob also. What guitar is it? It may be best just to run a new wire from the jack to the ground. When they got twisted the other end may have come loose.
