  1. Hello everyone. I'm David. I have an ESP LTD with EMG Pickups for about 6 years. Last week it started to get a "crunchy", somewhat distorted sound on the clean channel. - I tested it plugging directly to the amp, and the sound was still distorted. - Tried to plug in another amp in the clean channel, same result. - Tried another guitar (BC Rich Mocking bird with BCRich Pickups), same cables, and the sound came out crystal clear out of their clean channels. So it's obviously the guitar. Symptoms: - Even when the volume knob is at 30% to 50%, the sound remains dirty and distorted. - The sound seems less distorted when the neck pickup is up, and more distorted if the bridge pickup is selected. - The pickups are not too close from the strings What could it be? Something in the electric part of the guitar?
