Hello, I just got this Yamaha SA503TVL and I experience there is a constant noise from it. I don't know if it could be the camble but i think not because when i plug in my other guitar, which is a Epiphone SG special, there is no noise. Also the noise occurs only when the tone nod is on maximum. It may be worth mentioning that I use a V-amp 2 and plug that one in my computer.

Can anyone tell in some way what could be wrong? Is the whole thing ****ed? What can I do to fix it? Please help.

Maybe you should stop strumming the guitar, then.
Single coil pickups are much more sensitive than humbuckers and pick up buzz from computer screens, lights and other electronic/magnetic shit. Turn off your screen, or face away from it.

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...
I've noticed one more thing, that is when i put my hand on the mic that is used the noise gets reduced a lot. That is what scares me the most :S. Though I'm gonna go to a musicstore tomorrow and check it out.

Thanks for all the answers, appreciate 'em all.
