I just built an explorer over the summer and it turned out great all except for one problem, the wiring. I wired the humbuckers exactly how it said on the seymour duncan website, it has 2 tone 1 volume and a 3 way switch. Here is the wiring diagram i used . The pickups i put in it are a JB in the bridge and a '59 in the neck. My probelm is that whenever i turn the volume up higher or turn the gain up real high, i get terrible feedback coming from the amp. I originally thought it was a ground problem so that may be a factor. Also in the wiring diagram it says to ground everything to the bridge but i was unable to get a wire to the bridge on this guitar becuase of its design and because i didnt follow gibson's disign exactly. So instead i grounded to the stop tail piece, so i dont know if that may be the problem. Any help would be appreciated.

everything is grounded, the pots/pickups/switch is all ground together and i took a wire from on of the pots and grounded it to the stop tail piece. And i know its not the pedals cuz i tried without any a few times, and i just got a brand new amp and its still gives feedback, also it gives feedback on other amps also.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.
