AngelCityOutlaw Posted February 28, 2014 Report Share Posted February 28, 2014 So my damn guitar has been acting up again. Which isn't good since I've been recording stuff for people and I don't have a lot of days off to do it. Basically, it'll just randomly start making really bad crackling noises. At first, I thought it could be the cables, but I switched those out and the problem is still there. So I thought that maybe the input jack was loose, but it is not. I also check the wires to the input jack, but they too seem to be intact. The crackling and volume cut-offs happen whether I'm using a "real" amp or just a sim, so amplification is not the problem. I'm guessing that leaves either wiring or the pickups. This guitar probably ten years old by now, so maybe a component needs to replaced? I don't know, I want to hear some other opinions on what the problem could be. I'd take it to the guitar shop here in town, but they charge a lot since they're the only one in town and I don't want to pay them if it turns out this is something simple that I can fix on my own.
