few years ago i bought a fatrat fr15 amp forr an old encore junior guitar. i cant remember if it used to hum like this before i gave up, but about 6 months ago i started playing again and the amp made a horrible sharp buzzing noise through the amp. i bought a new ESP guitar, and the amp makes less of a buzz. i am getting a new amp soon, and i am hoping this will eliminate my problem, but is there any way of testing if the humming is my pickups fault or my amps fault? tahnks.

The LH-100 pups aren't very noisy. I use one as a neck pup in my MH-50 and it's never buzzed more than any other stock pup. I'd say it's a just a wiring/grounding issue within the amp. Those little practice amps tend to hold together pretty loosely. I wouldn't worry about the guitar, just hurry up and get the new amp.

im really not sure about those.
seeing as they are humbuckers i dont think they have anything to do with the buzz.

BUT i think you should go to your local music store and plug your guitar into a different amp and see if it buzzes, just to be sure.

what amp are you looking at?
