I have a set of Emg 81/85's installed into my epiohone Les Paul studio and theres some hum but it goes away when i touch the pots or input everything is wired correctly to diagram 5 of the installation booklet and I'm stumped on what could be cause this grounding issue since there internally grounded. Any ideas ? Oh my bad for posting in the wrong part of the forum im a little sleepy so i might have got mixed up sorry bout that

i was getting buzz and i was like wtf...? then i turned the tv off and the buzz turned to silence.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
It might be the problem. A poorly shielded guitar will pick up interfierance from TV's, computers, cell phones, some types of indoor lighting...it also sounds like there's a grounding issue. Check your soldering.
im pretty sure its not from tvs or other electoronics i also notice it stop it i touch the pot cavity
when i got my viper the emgs in it had a ground wire coming from the bridge.

I think you're a little off. I just looked up a bunch of EMG wiring diagrams, and they all have ground connections, like every other electric guitar.
