I've been making CBGs for a few months now. So far I have 16 that range from simple 3 string acoustic slide guitars to fully fretted 4 string 2 humbucker electric. I love the hobby and try to do something different with each one but I've hit a snag. All my electric guitars, other than ones with piezo pickups, have an annoying buzz when I plug them in.
I've tried humbuckers, coil pickups and clip-on acoustic pickups (mounted as a surface mic). Some I've soldered and some were pre-wired. No matter what I use, I get that buzz.
Is there something I'm missing? Shielding, grounding, feedback I'm overlooking? I just can't get a clean sound when I plug in.
