If my guitar makes a buzzing noise, but the noise goes away when I touch something metal, like a volume knob or the bridge, does that mean it has a wiring problem? And if it is a problem, could it possibly be caused by a bad connection to a 9volt in the back of the guitar?

it means there's a ground problem, meaning the circuit is poorly/not connected to a large piece of metal on the guitar

what kind of guitar is it?

Fernandes Ravelle. But I took it to a shop and the dude said there was nothing wrong with it.
EDIT: Oh you live kinda close where I live. I took it to the Music Box in Utica, if that means anything.

oh yeah I've been there before, seems like an ok place

anyway I've never heard of that guitar before but I just googled it and it seems to me like it's probably similar to a les paul in wiring, if you have any experience with a soldering iron it's really an easy fix, just run a wire from one of the volume pots to the back of the bridge or a metal plate if it has it

for what it's worth here's a diagram:

At like 23 and Van Dyke? I live only a few miles away.
I don't really like that place... at all.
It is a wiring problem, something isn't grounded.

Well I don't really get it, but I'll see what I can do. Thanx.

ya I work out that way during the summer, compared to the place I go to at 10 and gratiot it does kind of suck though

damn if I wasn't moving back to ann arbor today i'd offer to take a look at it for you, the only advice I could give you is to find another place to take it in, if you're ever in the roseville area the place I mentioned earlier is called Joe's Music, they have good guys there and a good tech

good luck!

I was just thinking about what you said and that actually makes sense, but there's another problem with my guitar. I just wanted to make sure that there was something definitly wrong with my guitar and the dude at Music Box was wrong, so i didn't mention it. I wrote about it in this thread, which didn't really help me: https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=944202
