I noticed some static sounds coming thru my amp when I was practicing tonight alone, it was only on the bridge pup on the Hi input on my Maz 18. So i started to troubleshoot, first the connections on the board, then the cables, then the speaker cable to the cab. Messed with the inputs on the amp, the bridge pickup, knobs on the amp and guitar... Finally i found that the static occurs when on the bridge pickup, when I brush or anchor my fingers against the pick guard under the bridge, i mean, physically touch the pick guard. If i rub the guard there, it literally just statics through the amp. I have a 93 MIJ Tele Custom, and the PUPS are Lollars and it has been re-wired and potted with the new PUPS about 15 years ago. I know the route and wiring are right there under the guard, but what could be causing this static to occur? I haven't talked to my tech yet, I'm guessing it is a shielding or wiring issue, but never had this happen or notice it before... Ideas?
