I have an Epiphone Dot Studio that has some annoying buzzing.
When connected to the amp, the buzz is pretty overwhelming when it's just sitting in my arms.
It buzzes on lower volume and with my amp settings low. I believe it is a grounding issue but I am not 100% sure. I noticed that when I touch the ring around the neck pickup, the buzzing stops and I get my nice clean sound. I had some upgrades done to it (pickups, wiring, pots, jack) and It still has the buzz. Any suggestions? Would copper taping help?
Here is a little more info in case it may help
