My guitar does this
But why have I never heard of this before.!
That's not possible......something must be wrong with the volume pot causing buzz when not on 10.....
We need much more info - what position on the 5-way? what amp? etc.....what model of Strat?
It’s a California strat
It is a wired Pickguard with some custom shop cs69’s
I tried it on three amps
When the volume is up. On the amps
And I hear the hum it diss appears
In neck and middle position
When the tone is on zero
And volume on 10
Okay - CS69's have hum in all 5 positions.....
You are saying you hear no hum with the tone turned all the way DOWN and volume on full? If so....100% normal, because the 'hum' is in the mid range of frequencies, and you're sending those and the highs to ground when the tone is on zero.....(all the way off)
Mind you when I pick up my phone near the amp there is a different sort of hum much louder that won’t go away no matter what I do
thank you I thought maybe I discovered a utopian wiring lol
Happy new year Ryan, always helpful and kind. Hope you'll have a great new year coming for you!
Didn't I answer you hours ago, in your other thread?
From your other thread....
Max the volume AND tone turned all the way off??? OR both on 10? You've confused me now.....
@Thrup'ny Bit made me have to go look and find the other thread.....
I didn’t see an answer that’s why I posted it again
But thank you if you did
max volume and tone on zero
You neglected to mention that in both threads until I asked....so it was VERY confusing....and yes 100% normal of course, every Strat loses 60 cycle hum with the tone on zero.....no matter WHERE the volume knob is
Have a Happy New Year!!
Turning the tone down lessens mains hum, always has.
