Hi UG, I'm in need of some help.
Today I bought a very good Gibson Les Paul replica from my cousin. Unfortunately, when I had it all tuned and ready to go, when I plugged it into the amp, all I got was a loud distorted noise, even when I turned the gain off.
My father, an electrician, had a look at it, and soldered a few loose connections, in the pick-up switch, but still no luck.
Am I missing some sort of common problem, does anyone know what it is and how to fix it, or should I send it in for repair?
(Also, the amplifier and cables are fine)
Thank you for your time

When you plug in, can you hear the guitar at all or is just buzz? If it's just buzz, it sounds like it could be a wiring problem. Probably a lose connection at the input jack. Have your dad take a look at the input jack to make sure everything is soldered correctly.
remove the output jack.

Make sure both wires are still connected.
