Ok so I've got a really loud buzzing problem. I have a Strat, which I've heard have historically buzzed. And a solid state amp (need to upgrade)...

But anyways I'm pretty sure its the guitar because i've plugged it into my roommates amp too and it still buzzed quite a bit.
I live in a dorm, in case that helps anyone who thinks its a grounding problem.

I dont know, it used to be just a little buzz every once in a while that i could mute. But now its a loud constant buzz.

Thanks for your help

Is it perhaps the 60 cycle hum of the single coil pickups, at least the standard ones in the Fender?

They're called humbuckers because they buck hum.

A few questions....

Is it a hum or a buzz? Does it happen only when you strum or also when left alone? Are you using any effects?

Single coils hum or buzz or whatever you wanna call it, that's life.

ok so i know its not the 60 cycle hum, because it does that normally and it started off doing that when i first plugged in, but then it like jumped up in volume.

so its def. buzzing from my guitar...
is it a grounding problem or what?

If it doesn't stop when you touch it, then check in the trem cavity of the guitar, and the control cavity. There's a wire attached to the tremolo claw that goes to one of the pots in the control cavity. See if it's bent all to hell, or even disconnected. If it is, you can just replace it with a 17 gauge nickel guitar string soldered in it's place.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
