i am using a vester telecaster copy plugged into a Fender Rumble 60. i know it is a bass amp but i mainly play bass and at the moment don't need a seperate amp, i think.

the problem is that when i connect the tele, there is a stupid amount of humm until i touch a string or even one of the tone/volume dials. this is even worse when distorted.

will a pedal such as the boss NS2 or any one of these http://www.dolphinmusic.co.uk/page/shop/browse/category_id/e63febc81a9b477b69fc0a5bb75ecec9 help?

if they do help, where should i put it in my affects, i have a distortion pedal as well.

thanks

your body is acting as the ground for the guitar. so it hums until you touch one of the metal parts. check your grounding.

Your body is supposed to act as a ground source for the guitar.

If there is humming that stops when you touch a metal piece of the guitar then there is a grounding issue.

Right, if the humming is severe, but all electrics will quiet down somewhat when you touch the strings or bridge.
