When ever I touch a metal part on the guitar (selector switch, bridge, strings, ect.) the idle noise dies. But, if I am not in contact the amp makes the noise. Does this happen with all amps? Thanks!

I think it has something to do with you disrupting the magnetic field or some ****. When you mute the strings you stop them from vibrating. When you stop them from vibrating you stop the magnets from picking up sound.

its the grounding in your guitar. your body acts as the ground in the circuit, so the current flows from the metal parts, through you, to the earth. its not the amp. you can cut the noise with a noise gate of some sort.

IF u have single coil pickups it might be lights shining on your pickups. if u turn down your lights and it stops, thats the problem
