Especially when I pick the guitar up and hold it flat. I don't know if it's got something to do with the pickups or what. It's louder through distortion/overdrive, it sound horrible.

Check your saddles and pickups. It could be either your saddle screws buzzing or the pickup screws or even fret buzz. Make sure everything is tight. If it's your saddle screws, tighten them up just a tad and put some clear nail polish on them to prevent them from "self adjusting". It could also be the pickguard. I know that sounds weird, but try holding it down next time you play.

Yes I was rude, and I was aggressive and I was offending a large group of people. But I was civlized about it.

are you sure this is the problem?

TS before you go adjusting anything, is it an electrical buzzing sound like a constant hum or something that happens when you play the strings that you hear whether it's plugged in or not?

It might just be the regular single coil hum. Nothing you can do about that I'm afraid.

+1 That's what I thought too when I read his post.

Is the guitar shielded/grounded? Single coils might be the problem.

It sounds like something electrical, but I've looked inside and there isn't a wire loose. Do single coils buzz when you pick the guitar up like that? I think the hum I get with distortion and overdrive is probably just the single coil issue, but I'm just not sure about that buzzing sound.

Have you eliminated the obvious?

- Test with different cables
- Test the amp with a different outlet, somewhere else in the house
- Try a different guitar to see if that buzzes too
- Touch your fingers on a metal part of the guitar. Does the buzz drop off?

How does your tele sound through your Big Muff?

I'm thinking either the pickups aren't grounded properly, or maybe one of the wires is coming off the jack, maybe not entirely - but even the slightest lack of connection can cause a buzz.

if by "like that" you mean holding the guitar so the front of the guitar is pointing upwards, it probably would make it buzz if you're pointing the pickups towards a light on the ceilling or something, especially if you have those strip lights in your house. I had a squier tele (Well, i've still got it, actually) that used to buzz like hell whenever I used it in the college recording studios because of the type of lights they had in the room.

Yeah when the pick ups are pointing at the ceiling it buzzes louder.

Excellent. By using an EQ pedal to eliminate the Muff's mid scoop it's a much more useable fuzz. Then, by using the Tele, it adds a lot more clarity and attack in the tone. I find that it sounds rubbish if you use a humbucker with it, but the twangy Tele bridge sounds great. Perfect combo, IMO.
