I seem to have an issue with my guitar, an epiphone Les Paul Custom w/ EMG 81-85s. My guitar lost its ability to produce cleans. At first, i assumed it was my amplifier. Switched amps - same problem. Next step was the cord, and the sound did not change upon switching cords. Now obviously, I'm taking it to the local guitar shop to get it checked, but what could cause this?

To specify the problem, cleans are incredibly distorted, Gain channels cause a loss of noise, over-bassiness, and a hollow sound.

Thanks in advance.

Checked the battery. And by lost its ability, I mean alltogether. No cleans whatsoever. Clean channel on two amplifiers sound EXACTLY the same, like a punky-grunge sort of distortion.

what was the other amp you played it through? and did you switch out the pickups yourself or get someone to do it?

Good choice.

Anyways TS, I assume you've fiddled with volume/tone pots?

Maybe it's the wiring? EMGs have bad cleans but at least they resemble cleans.
