Greetings. I have an AVRI ‘64 Tele. All stock components, and until now never a problem. It recently started making some scratchy noise, though, and I couldn’t quite place the origin. I tried cleaning the pots and the cable jack and then figured out the noise happened only when the neck pickup is engaged. BUT — the noise also only comes when I somehow touch the pickguard. I think this must be related to static buildup — I live in a very arid city — but am wondering also if it has something to do with how the neck pickup is wired. Again, it doesn’t happen with the bridge pickup.I know very little about the electronics of a guitar, but want to fix this properly — not with a dryer sheet or some other hack. I will take it to a tech soon, but thought I would seek advice here too. Thanks for any help.
