ok so sorry if its the wrong forum.

I've got a washburn guitar..the house of blues edition model and when i plug it in directly to the amp there is alot of extra noise. I plugged in other guitars and they make no noise so it cant be the amp. Anything i can do to fix this? Do the wires/pickups need to be re-soldered?

Thanks =)

If it's a buzzing kinda noise, then it could be that the guitars not grounded properly, or shielded properly, or both.

This isn't uncommon and not hard to fix at all. The best way to check if this could be the problem is to plug in, turn on and see if the noise lessens when you touch the strings or bridge. Even then, it could still be an interference problem caused by the guitar being poorly shielded.

Just run it down to your local guitar store and I'm sure they can sort it out.

Ah ok, then it could well be a grounding problem or a loose connection in the output jack assembly. Still not difficult or expensive to get fixed.

It doesn't sound like a massive problem to me, just an annoying one.
