The age old question "wtf!!"

When I play my ibanez with EMG85/81s through my 6505+ or Valveking, I get 0 feedback, it's well controlled high gain fun.

When my friend plugs his Telecaster with SeymorDuncan Hotrail pickups into either one, it sequels uncontrollably and makes the amp worthless live, even an ISP Decimator does no good.

Help?

Well it's obviously his guitar, as your guitar doesn't feedback horribly. Tell your friend to make sure all grounds are correctly soldered.

It only squeals when not being played, i left that out.

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

i'm pretty sure there's a difference between hot rails and humbuckers though.

to my knowledge, hot rails have high output LIKE humbuckers - but they're still single coils.

Humbuckers aren't designed to be high gain pickups just because there humbuckers. There designed to cancel hum, the name states this HUMbuckers. So the hot rails are hot like humbuckers is incorrect and rails are there to cancel hum like a HUMbucker would.

Also another FYI the Valveking is far from a high gain amp so its not a single coil through high gain amp issue either.

We are selling the Valveking and buying either a Rockerverb 50 or a Stiletto, which are indeed high gain. So we wanna get this problem fixed by then.

So far, I'm getting a lot of "improperly grounded" and "wax pickups" answers, I'll try both
