I'm pretty sure my guitar has some sort of grounding problem.

Both wires are attached to the jack, but when I touch the pad that the white one is soldered to, theres this insane buzzing noise.

There already is a buzz when I don't touch anything metal on the guitar.

Last time I got my guitar soldered, I was told that it would need to be sent in to be re-wired and I really don't have the money or time for my guitar to be rewired. Is there anyway I can fix this?

I was considering that copper tape from MF...

As far as I know copper tape is only for shielding, not for grounding issues, but I may be totally wrong there

You can get yourself a soldering iron and some solder for £10/$10-12?

Failing that post up some pictures of where you think the problem is and people may be able to offer more advice

I would have thought maybe shielding would fall under grounding issues.

I can't. I don't own a soldering gun, and I'm not handy with one either. There's not enough wire to solder it back on once I cut it off as well, it needs to be re-wired.

There's really no need for posting pictures. Both wires are attached to the plates, but the white wire makes a horrible noise when you touch the plate its soldered to.
