this is my first post here. evidently I registered 3 years ago, but never posted anything nor remembered that I registered. I would have started posting a while ago had I known/remembered that I register but.... you know
I have been lurking here for a while.
So over the past year I built a WGD jerrycaster, It took quite a while due to many things, and I got it done just before Christmas. I am now stumped by an issue I am having with the guitar, I have been through the electronics probably 5 times trying to solve this, and I have finally narrowed down my problem, but don't know what to do about it. It seems that if I touch my strings with my adamas pick (or anything else grounded for that matter) I get a crackle. If I switch to a plastic pick, no crackle. I have tried other Adamas picks just in case there was a problem with that one pick, and the same thing.
Anyone have any ideas?
If this is like any other forum I have been on, I am betting you want pics. let me know and I can oblige. I also have pics of every step in the build process, so I can give ya a blow by blow if you really wish.
any help would be great. I really don't want to switch picks for this one.
