My LTD F-50 has a bit of a problem with the electronics. Whenever I am not muting the strings with my hand or playing notes, the guitar feedbacks with this high-pitched ear-shattering squeal. It's really horrible when the amp is cranked. What's making it do that? More importantly, how do i fix it? (I'm pretty good at a set-up, but a total n00b at wiring.)

Well yes, but this is worse. My other guitars don't do this at all. I mean at bedroom volume it's fine but I gotta gig with this thing eventually. it'll be hell at those volumes.

are your pickups vibrating?

My bridge pickup vibrates (springs ftl, surgical tubing is much quieter) and feeds back like hell if i don't hold onto it.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

You may have a grounding issue. Check the wiring.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

you may potentially have microphonic pickups

Hi, I am looking for an amp setting close to the sound of bands like Black Veil Brides.

Probably a grounding issue. Open it up and see if there is a (probably) silver wire going from inside the guitar to the back of one of the pots.

I would bet it's one of three things:

Grounding problem
Too much gain/ bad location
Microphonic pickups

switch the pickup selector to bridge, tap the guitar, rinse repeat with neck


if either one makes more noise than the other, it's probably microphonic.
