Hey all,

Just before, I was playing my guitar when I noticed that my distorted sound was muddy, despite not having changed any setting on my amp or guitar. I switched to the clean channel and the clean channel sound pretty dirty and, well, distorted.

I tested my amp with my Squier and it sounded fine on both fronts so I can only assume it's the guitar and not the amp.

I'm playing a Jackson WRMG with active EMGs (81/85) through a Fender Frontman 15G (My regular amp is kaput) if that helps at all. My best guess is that the battery may need changing because it's been hiding in there for a fair while now.

Anyway, thanks for the help.

Well, active pickups have a lot of power under the hood, so it's likely that they're causing the distortion.

Did you use this guitar/amp combination before? And did it sound clean when you did?

Yes and yes. It sounded perfect yesterday and then crappy today.

Turn down the gain on the clean channel, and maybe turn back the volume on your guitar.
