I was wondering, can you get a static like effect on your guitar at all? I have a sick idea for a song, but I can't get any sort of static sound at all. Please help!
put a cell phone against your pickups, unplug your cable and hold it in your hand or by a florescent light. Try really obscure things, and see if its what you would like

Gibson Les Paul Studio w/dirtyfingers pickups
Gibson Joan Jett Melody Maker
VOX ac30 head
Marshall 1960 4x12 cab
Fender Hot Rod Deville
if you turn the volume down all the way on your guitar, and activate a distortion+overdrive pedal that both have the gain and volume maxed, and you have a volume pedal or wah, you can control the static.....

/\ Heh, thats what I was gonna say.
Unplugging your guitar would be your best bet imo, but that may affect your amp in a negative way.

A Noise Swash could probably do it pretty well, but they are rather rare/pricey, and for the one song it probably isn't worth it.
