I am currently experiencing a strange thing. I am hearing a radio through my speakers when my guitar is plugged in my computer. It's really strange. It's like my guitar is a radio antenna. If I unplugged my guitar then I do not hear anything anymore.

Have you already experienced that kind of "paranormal" stuff ? smile.gif

I have in the past. I've heard that a poor guitar cable can cause this, something to do with polarity. I just jam along.. laugh.gif

it has do to with ground, phases etc. smile.gif

hahah good one smile.gif

Sometimes pickups can catch that signal and transfer the sound to the amp. But Muris is also right, amp can cause it as well.

It's perfectly normal don't worry. When this happens to me I usually turn the tone pot a bit to look for some other stations laugh.gif
