When there is nothing plugged into the amp, it makes no sound, typically, however, when I plug the guitar in, there is tons of static. The guitar is an Ibanez RG6003FM and the amp is the Fender Mustang II v.2 40 watts. I believe it is the guitar and not the amp because the amp makes no sound when nothing is plugged into it. Also, I have tried two cables, so definitely not them. Any help would be appreciated.

Does the static go away when you touch the strings?
If so, its probably a grounding issue with the bridge

If not, its probably still a grounding issue but from a different source.
