So, I haven't played it too much until the past couple of days, but plugging in my Gibson explorer again, I've discovered that it makes a pretty loud buzzing noise at all times, considerably louder than the "normal" hum I get from my other guitars. Is the likely cause of this a bad solder joint? or are there other things I should look for first before messing with it?

If it means anything, it's just equipped with the stock 500T/496R pickups. These were re-installed back into after I got rid of my EMG's several months back.

Thanks!

Check the output jack, see if all the wires there are connected where they should be (Specifically the hot and ground wire, ground goes to the inside lug, hot goes to outside, both on the jack).
