I just got a Gibson Les paul standard 2009, and I noticed that when i put on a lot of distortion, and play a chord or something, and let it ring out, after a few seconds it will start making this screeching noise, almost like a pinch harmonic sound, by itself, and when I touch the strings, it stops (the string stops vibrating). This also happens when i just lightly touch one of the strings. Is this normal?
P.S.:All of this only happens when its on the "Insane" channel on my amp (Lots of distortion), no pedal

By saying insane channel I am guessing you have a spider, it could be your pickups are microphonic or a grounding problem.

Feedback?

Step away from the amp.

Turn the distortion level down.

Turn the volume down.

That's just the Les Paul squealing in pain being plugged into a spider.

Really sounds like it's just feedback though. Are you facing the amp when it happens? How far away do you stand?

Yeah I was facing the amp like one foot away from it. I think that may have been the reason

its feedback, and dude, get rid of your spider and get at least like a crush 30 watt, that worked pretty good 4 me

I''d congratulate him.

To be fair, he's done amazingly well to punch my hand when it's usually in my pocket.
