I recieved this guitar a little less than 4 years ago. When I plug it into my amp now I get way too much feedback. All my other guitars are fine with this amp. I have no idea how feedback works other than it has something to do with the pick-ups. I want to decrease the feedback so do I need to get new pick-ups or what?

Feedback is caused by loose stuff, mostly metallic stuff. The coils on your pickups may be coming loose, or if theres lots of open space inside the guitar that can do it too. you could try getting some copper shielding tape or paint to cover the inside of the pickups routes, but your best bet is probably new pickups.

doesnt the tape stuff usually come with the guitar. cause i think when i was younger and dumb I pulled the tape off to just see what would happen.

goodcharlottes point is interesting too. something got loose. check the wiring. probably a wire is not soldered and needs it. altough that would creat a ground-like noise(like when you connect the guitar with tha amp on) and not feedback. but you can check. and replace the copper if you dint have cash, but a better pickup will help you more
