My guitar making buzzing sound. I don't know what is happening. Sometimes it making buzzing sound and then its gone and then it comes again. But when i touch a metal part from the guitar ( near to the guitar plug-in / jack ) sound suddenly gone. I couldn't tell you so much , so i post a video to YOUTUBE so you guys can find out what is happening.

Help me please.

  • Have a look at this thread: pickups-and-selector-switch-stop-buzzing-when-touched. Sometimes this is caused by your own body picking up noise from nearby computer screens, fluorescent lights etc. – Andy Aug 4 '16 at 8:22
  • Either there is earthing issues with your guitar, or with your home. If its something with guitar, Tim's solution will help you out. – user32405 Aug 4 '16 at 10:35

Seems to me that there is an earthing problem with the guitar. All of the metal parts should be electrically joined, often with a braided wire. This puts them all at the same voltage level. Open up the guitar, which on a Strat involves taking strings and scratchplate off, and check that the earth wire joins all of the components. If that sounds scary, you need to find a guitar tech to do the job. Good luck.

  • hahah definitely sounds like it. I have so much static in my strat strings that one of the capacitors will occasionally create a popping sound in my signal. – jazzboy Aug 5 '16 at 1:23
