Hi Guys,

Got my hands on a late 70's USA Fender Telecaster, but i think the pickups are a bit knackered. I could do with some help as to how to sort this out easily please! Problem is everytime i use even a little bit of gain, all i get is pretty much pure feedback.

If you could help me with ways to solve this it would be very much appreciated!

Cheers Guys,

Just running down the list for a differential diagnosis...

Did you try your guitar on another amp, or did you try a different guitar on the same amp to make sure this Tele is the problem?

If so... Try touching a metal part (bridge, tuners) and see if the feedback goes away. If it does then you most likely have a ground wire loose somewhere inside the guitar.
