The title is a bit too much, but what i mean is i want to open my guitar.
first of al i just want to look whats inside my guitar.
and second when i put overdrive on there a terrible noice.

( i know thats useual but it is a bit extreme, and a friend of mine says there is perhaps a loose wire. so i want to check it out )

And my Question is: if someone has a website or a pic ( or knows the mystery of the loose wire ) of how a guitar looks from the inside.

I know you folks know a LOT so maybe someone can help me


ps: its a Electric Guitar

Pointless text is pointless


Anyway,search around the web and I'm sure you'll find diagrams and pictures of a properly wired guitar. Look for odd wiring hanging off the pots and jack and generally poor connections and damaged portions of wire.It may also be an amp/grounding/pedal issue,so keep that in mind as well.

I would google that, or get some cash and take it to a professional, I wouldn't take the chance on your only guitar.

OHHHHHH. I thought you meant it worked on hopes and dreams, with the wires just holding it all together.

Glad we got this cleared up

With a philips screwdriver, you unscrew the screw holding the cover over the control compartment. Now look and see if anything looks out of place.

Does the noise go away if you touch a metal part of the guitar (input jack or metal knobs)? If so you have a grounding issue, might want to insulate your control cavity with copper foil, a pretty easy procedure.

crappy single coils? too close to the amp?

have you ever held a screwdriver in your hand? yes? so why "destroy"?

It is indeed, when i touch some metal the noice goes away. and thanks for the serious answer.

Are you maybe dutch? (because of the philips) If so maybe you can explain it to me in dutch. if you want.

yea, sorry, not dutch. But you have a grounding problem so it will take a bit of work to fix. Take it to a shop if you aren't handy with a soldering iron.

If you can solder just do a search for a guide to properly ground your guitar, plenty of info on the web.
