high gain + strong radio freq. + faulty house grounding = an amp you don't even have to play

I used to have that problem. Turns out there were some demons trapped in there. Have it exorcised, should fix the problem.

if i held headphones next to the pickups the sound would come through my amp.

It used to happen to me in my old house when I had the distortion up and my wah pedal all the way back in the bass side. At first I thought it was ghosts trying to talk to me, but then I realized just how idiotic that sounds, and figured it was just radio waves or something. So I went searching the radio for whatever was coming out of my amp and alas, it was some talk show on some strange AM station.

Although some girl DID kill herself in that house... in that very room... before my family moved in it. But I didn't know that at the time.

It happened to me about a month ago, some weird combination of distortion box, high gain and sitting angle. I was picking up some religeous radio station. LOL That was pretty weird in it's self.

I got something foreign once, I figured out you can talk to the people on the other side of the radio! Try it out!

It sometimes happens when your cable is wound up a little. It acts as a coil, and your guitar acts as an arial. Its common. Physics y'see.
