I'm continuing my discussion about my buzzing Les Paul because the other topic was getting long and I had already said what I thought would be the last post, closing with "i guess I should see a repair guy". Well I was fiddling around and I came up with this-

I took some extra string wire that I cut off the smallest string when I fit it on the guitar; I took this metal wire and put it on the jack. What I realized was that if I held it and strummed the guitar, the buzzing was almost 100% gone. However the high-pitched noises are a tad muffled, but all the sound is muffled over all.

I tried putting it to several things, eventually I hooked it to the tailpiece and then the sound stopped all together (all sound- buzzing and stumming noise alike). I don't know if this helps at all... Heh, I have no idea what it means other than my arm got real tingly XD

I had buzzing too, but I just replaced the jack. the original, epiphone branded one's clip got loose and scored around the bend. about to snap.

Earthing... Googled it, still haven't found a decent definition. This obviously isn't a fix, so does it give any insight to the real problem?

earthing's kinda like grounding. but literally, to the earth.
