hi ppl,

the time has come for a new problem

my guitar produces a buzz when the guitar volume is not max.. when it is on max it doesnt give the buzz.. this kinda sucks cause there's too much sustain on max guitar volume and when i do it lower it gives a buzz

anyone knows a solution?

its an Ibanez grg170dx

Some probabilities:
- Too much gain/distortion
- Playing in front of ur CRT monitor
- Not grounding the guitar to your body, ie make contact with the guitar by strings
- Amp sucks

Other related probability:
- Poor grounding
- Your house is near a huge electric tower/ power supply building
- Poor shielding

- the gain is at 50%, the buzz dissapears when its on 0%
- don't have that, unless you mean the front of my amp?
- so the guitar needs to be make contact to my body?
- amp is the cube-30

Yes, the electronics inside needs grounding, unless your have special noise/buzz/hum canceling pickups.

try turning of all of the appliances in the room with your amp
.
and no, just take the guitar to a music store and ask if its grounded properly

maybe its a bad volume pot. usually they crackle when u roll them. but other noises arent out of the question.

Try switching to pickup position 1 or 5, which is the humbucker-only position and fret a note, make contact with your string. Still buzzing?

Buzz or crackling noise? If its crackling noise, it might be your cable or output jack, being that its unproper soldering. And if its still buzzing, probably the wiring inside had gotten loose somewhere on the volume pot or touching each other where they arent supposed to.
