the single coils on my squier strat have little dots of rust on them, is this a problem? i think it may be causing my amp to buzz.
Shouldn't be. Your amp might be buzzing cos you have single coil pickups. Has it buzzed before? Does it buzz if you have 2 pickups on at once?
Rust won't cause problems. Probably just the fact they are single coils.
Mine are the same they sound pretty bad anyway so you could change them for some fender tex mex.
Yeah man, single coils, especialy the cheap ones they put on squiers tend to buzz allot. To the best of my knowledge rust does nothing but ad charcter.
is it fret buzz, or buzz that lessens when you put the guitar switch in the 2 or 4 spot, buzz that stops when u touch metal on the guitar, or buzz that changes when u move the guitar cable around...
