Is there a way to reduce the amount of buzz coming from my amp? I just got a new guitar (Fender USA standard strat) and because of the single coils i'm getting alot of buzz and its driving me insane.

does using a humbucker get rid of it?

edit: that will tell us if its the guitar or outside interference...

sheild it a little more, not just the top, but the cavities. get some copper sheilding tape and find a tutorial. u will need to know how to solder btw. Or get some noiseless pickups, which of course would work but would be more expensive.

Yep, noiseless pickups should do the trick unless the buzz is feedback coming from your amp. In that case, I don't know, get a better amp.
Signatures are too mainstream

the fender vintage noiseless are the best pickups ever I think, and are more responsive than the Americans. also lace sensors kick ass, I hear. shielding should be a last resort, not to be done by yourself. first tryto isolate the interference, neon signs, monitors, wireless signals, and other such objects spawn hum. try using a humbucking pickup to see if it still exists. also a shiyyt amp can't help, or too much distortion/ volume. try putting the pickup selector in 2 or 4, splitting the pups can buck hum since most strats have reverse polarity middle pup. maybe try a noise gate, but they can suck tone/not help.

dont just buy new pickups because theres some buzzing, you need to shield the cavity

these are not the best of clips, but if you try it yourself on a tube amp they are responsive and sweet.
I recommend using a deluxe players strat(600$) wiith a fender blues jr to try them.

^the upgrade is worth it, shielding would cost money to have done, and kill the guitar if he can't do it himself, the pickups are only 130 for noiseless or hot noiseless, 150 for 3 laces. My only complaint of the Americans has been the crappy stock pickups, these make it a dream guitar.
