Ok i just plugged my guitar in, ive tested the chords with another guitar and stuff and my amps fine, its within my guitar. I have an ESP KH-202, it's got 2 volume knobs and 1 tone knob and it has dual EMG-81 pickups...so, all 3 of my knobs are working as volume knobs, the tone was turns my volume down just like the other 2 and the sound does not change, and there is a thin underlying line of distortion cutting through both my clean and gain channel. Is this is a pickup wiring issue? any help would be amazing.
Check your battery, sounds like it's dying.
The whole tone knob thing sounds like a wiring issue but it does also sound like your battery is running out if the pickups are distorting on their own; switch the battery and check your wiring at the same time.
alright, thanks guys.
