Can anyone else hear that, what the hell?!! ...Quiet annoying

When I got my first guitar, it was a Cort Bullet Stratocaster by the way, and plugged it in it began buzzing annoyingly. I tried adjusting the dials on the guitar, and the dials on the amplifier the it just buzzed no matter what.
Being the beginner I was I just assumed it was a bad amp. But when I got my second guitar (Schecter Hellraiser Tempest) I noticed there was no buzz, it was nice and quiet. And from then on I knew it was the guitar! Surely there are other brands and models that buzz loudly too?

So if you've had a guitar that does anything like that, write about it, I mainly want to know the model, thanks!

Its just a cheapy guitar to be honest, if u want to get rid of it the only thing i can think of is shielding your guitar..

Its most likely because your first guitar had single coils and you were playing with distortion. Single coils and distortion give a nasty hum (Isnt is 60 cycle?).

Ding ding ding, we have a winner.

My 1600 dollar American strat does that (well.. DID.. until I put noiseless pickups in it)

If it's a real cheap guitar, it isn't worth it.

No its the singlecoil's there called humbuckers becuase they buck hum.


Oh god really? But yeah, that's why most guitarists that play heavier stuff use humbuckers, since they use a quite a bit of dist, the humbuckers help a bit.
