Thanks Scott,

The hum is a killer though, think I need a noise gate, Mertay, any ideas?

Cheers


Since p90's in use likes touch sensitivity and the hiss is high even with overdrive, I'd say adjusting a good setting would be really hard for the noisegate.

I still think some shielding could help, its not a pickguarded guitar so not too much shielding can be done to effect tone anyway...worst case if the noise is still too much (there will always be some noise, personally well shielded guitars noise doesn't bother me) you can swap the PU's to noiseless type and have a dead silent guitar.

Thanks Mertay,

I watched this video and the noiseless also seems to lack sparkle.

I find the P90's in my guitar have hum that is louder than the playing at times. Maybe I should get some proper Gibson P90's instead of what is in this Epi?

Cheers

The ones in the video are really good, atleast their brands are well known. As for the sparkle it also has a lot to do with the setup but its a common complain that noiseless PU's don't feel like the true ones. Brands invested a lot to single-coils but I don't know how good the noiseless p90's are.

The noise can be caused by many things, even a bad solder or something wrong with the jack input...high-end PU's do perform better on noise compared to the chinese stuff but I don't think it will be enough to solve your problem.

I remember getting a better output-to-noise ratio when my tech simply changed the switch. Re-soldering, new switch and wires made a huge difference but that guitar was really old.
