Greetings. I have a DBZ Bolero since November 2010. I replaced the stock pickups with a SH-5 and a PGn. At first I didn’t get well alone with the combination, but now I really like it since is a very versatile combination. Thing is my guitar (is a import made in Korea) is giving me some problems. I hear the SH-5 taming the natural ‘’noise’’ an amp gives and when I switch to middle or neck position the hum (ground/static) noise ‘’takes over’’ my signal. When I use a distortion, internal or external overdrive, the Duncan Custom stays normal, but my Pearly Gates get really noisy. It wasn’t this way before. Is this normal? Does this means guitar rewire or not? It looks like DBZ Guitars are made in the same fabric as the PRS SE Series. I don’t know if that gets to the point; but someone may know what the problem is.
Do you think is time for rewiring the guitar? My guitar had the following mods since his purchase: brand new toggle switch, Duncan Custom (SH-5) on the bridge, Pearly Gates on the neck. All the stock electronics are still in the guitar. What do you think the problem may be?
