    Hey,

    I have a L298TL in spare par Esquire. I am using Bill Lawrences Special Esquire wiring.

    The noise sounds like static or a neon coming throught the signal. Here is what I have checked.

    My bridge is modern 6 saddle Gotoh and therefore bridge material should not be an issue.

    I have re-solder all ground connections.

    I have tripled check the diagram.

    I am a little at lost of where the problem could be coming from. Any insights would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    My first thought is that it's ground buzz. Does the noise go down when you touch the strings? If so, shield the electronics cavity.
