the guitar of my guitarrist(a cheap LP copy) has lots of feedback when played with an amp, the problem happened with 3 diferent amps, and we tried other guitar with the same amps and no feedback so now i am sure its the guitar

the guitar is a LP copy, prety much like an epiphone standard but with heavier wood, nicer sound, and overall better
the bad part of the guitar are electronics, the ones that came with the guitar are really cheap

what could cause the problems?
maybe jack?, pots?, caps? pups!??
help please, we have a gig in 2 weeks!!!

I can't imagine electronics being the problem, it definitely sounds like a problem with the pickups. That's about all I know.

Your pickups are most likely the problem. Easy short term solution would be to get a noise suppressor such as a Boss NS -2 or an ISP Decimator. Long term I would look at switching out your pick ups for something of better quality.

You're guitar may need to be re-grounded. You should take it to a shop.

Many of the cheap knock offs will use really hot pickups. Cheap hot wound pickups means feedback. My cheaper epi had some unbelievably hot pickups in it. Sounds alot better with some good pickups that are relativly low output. The knock off companies will do many things to cut costs. They may not waxpot humbuckers with metal housings result lots of feedback. And some will go as far as put a single coil in a humbucker housing. So pickups is a good place to start looking in a knock off LP.
