I recently purchased a Schecter C-1 and I love it. One problem I am having though is when I try to kill the sound abruptly by muting the strings, I get this strange overtone ringing swell. I know my description isn't very good but if anyone has some idea of what I'm talking about and knows how to fix it I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you in advance!

Accidental pinch harmonic? Happens a lot with high output pickups like EMG's.

It's not feedback and I have the gain turned down pretty low, it sounds more like a natural harmonic than anything else. I adjusted the action hoping that would help but it did nothing.

I think I know what you are talking about, the way I stopped getting it was to use multiple fingers to mute the strings and the palm of the right hand. Do it fast and with a bit of force, just make sure to not hit the frets or something and make a sound.

Tap the body of the guitar when it's plugged in and see if you get quite a lot of noise coming through the guitar. If you do, you have microphonic pups.
