Earthing Problem?


Recommended Posts

I've built and completed my Les Paul Replica.

After having wired it up several times (i'm not good at wiring) until I finally got sound out of it, there is now a terrible hum from it.

I have checked and re-checked the diagrams and can't for the life of me figure out what the problem could be. The sound is like a fairly loud and constant buzz/hum that stops completely if I touch either of the two pickups. almost as if I'm earthing it with by body. But I don't know how to cure it. It still plays and sounds great and all the controls seem to be working fine. but this humming is driving me nuts.

Any suggestions please?
