The two wires on the input jack are soldered backwards, just resolder them the opposite way they are now

No no, I'm talking about the leads inside the guitar going to to the input jack.





Don't pay attention to the long prong, that's for the instrument cable. There should be a wire going to each shorter prongs. If your guitar buzzes when you touch the strings then these wires are soldered on backwards. Just desolder the two wires and resolder them the other way around

I never realized the guitar would even make an audible sound if the wires were backwards...like the TS stated he's a beginner and has no wiring exp so how did this get messed up? Do some companies mess this up during production?

Some guitars hum a little bit when they're plugged up. But when you touch the strings the buzz goes away, right? Well if the two leads going to the input jack are soldered backwards, the opposite happens. The guitar is quiet but when you touch the strings it buzzes.


As far as companies messing this up... it's a pretty easy to do actually. I would bet that every guitar tech ever has done this at least once in their career. It doesn't hurt anything... just annoying
