I currently have a problem with a static sound running through my setup, worse if i boost the gain, but if i touch anything metal in the link, like the pots on my tele or my vox overdrive pedal, the static instantly goes. It does it with both my strat and tele. Anyone have idea what this could be/remedy? Thanks
check your leads, that is usually the cause... if not it could be a loose wire in your guitars electronics. can you try a different guitar through the rig? maybe take some pedals out and see if thats the problem.
the ground came loose
Definitely the ground came loose, you're essentially grounding it when you touch anything metal that should be attached to ground (the pots, the pickups, etc).
Makes sense, thankyou, how would i go about fixing this?
Solder the ground back on. If you don't know how to solder, then you can take it to your local shop. Shouldn't cost too much. But, soldering is very easy and it is a good thing to know how to do.
