Hey, so I just picked up an Epiphone Les Paul Standard yesterday, and I am having some issues. I think it is the amp, but it has me very worried that the guitar is defective. When I adjust my settings to how I want them and start playing, sometimes the effects will completely change randomly. For instance, I was playing with heavy distortion, and it randomly just switched to a clean tone, without me touching any settings. Sometimes the sound will be completely different if I turn the amp off and then back on. Which is extremely irritating for obvious reasons .If anyone knows what the hell is going on here, please let me know.
It's the amp, not the guitar.
There is no way for your guitar to cause that. It's the amp. What kind of amp is it?
