I have a C1 Plus, and have installed an EMG 81/60 set on it. I have been playing it for about 8 months no problems.

Just recently I have been getting some odd sounds when I hit a note on frets 5-9 or 10 on my a and d strings primarily. I'm not sure if it's some sort of harmonic or what, but it is basically a squeal along with the note if that makes sense. I can't even play the intro bit to Seek and Destroy anymore, the squeals I get are terrible. If I play very slowly the problem is eliminated or reduced, but when I play songs up to speed it gets bad.

I play mostly high gain stuff on a Peavey XXX 1x12, it is getting really annoying. Anyone have any suggestions? I have not messed with the action, pup height or anything. I really haven't even changed by amp settings for a long time. Thanx.

Because it's a schecter

It could be that some frets are lower than the others so that when you fret the note it sort of chokes on the next fret or further along down the board?

have you changed the batteries in your EMGs recently? if not, then thats probably the problem.

most probably it's the near-to-death tree that they carved up to make your neck squealing in painful agony. You need to remove the neck from your guitar and remove the tree's heart, usually located between the frets 3 and 5 under the B string. Your welcome, in advance.

Change the battery, and see if there are any irregularities in the frets.

It's doing that because all EMGs do is squeal.

Yeah, change the batteries and see if its any better. If not, you might have irregular frets. Send your guitar to a tech to have it checked out, it might need fret leveling.

Thanks guys, I'll swap the battery and see if that helps. It didn't used to do it.
#17
you have tried changing your strings have you!?
If not, do so! Bad strings can cause some weird harmonics. No idea why though ^^
