    on the bright side, i have gotten pretty good at turning my guitar down when im not playing.
    thank you very much for the link and your time
    was the pickup installed properly? (grounding, bridge ground etc)

    for the most part what was said before is more than likely whats going on. i had the same problem for a while there and figured out that it was the position of the amp and my playing

    The problem is, if you play very loud, and you must stand close to your amp, you're dealing with fundamental laws of nature. A good quality pickup may actually make the problem worse, by virtue of its higher output.

    I don't know if trying some of the shielding techniques outlined over at www.guitarnuts.com might help or not.

    started a topic pickup changing question

    pickup changing question

    ok, i have a seymour duncan JB pickup that i was going to use on the guitar im making. but i have been getting a peircing squeel out of my amp. i know it is because i like to use a fair amount of distortion (not huge amounts) and i also have to stand quite close to my amp in my jamming room. but would a seymour duncan squeel less than a stock pickup from a $400[AU](cheap) guitar? ... though the switch would likely be temporary...


    (i posted this on the metallica forum, and didnt get any help. hopefully a forum dedicated to pickups will be of more help)
Working...
