My friend gave me his squier telecaster because the input was loose and the tone knob has some problems. So I fixed the input, it just needed a washer/nut on it, and now I want to get rid of the annoying tone problem. If the tone knob is not turned completely down, theres always a horrible buzzing sound, and it gets even worse when I touch the strings. So I took off the back plate and found that the tone knob is loose. Is that the reason it buzzes? I can't see anything else that could be wrong with it... I was thinking I'd re-solder all the wire connections because some of them weren't done too well.
It's the pick ups. Single coils always buzz.
So I tightened the tone knob, still buzzes. Maybe it's a loose grounding? Any ideas?
yep resolder most of the solder joints, then check to see if your still grounded, after that you could do a whole rewire which is the last thing you wanna do
