    Buzzing coming from amp on high gain channels...

    Hey everyone, I have an LTD-MH201. I had the duncan design pickups that come installed factory taken out, and instead put in SH-5 (Bridge) and SH-4 (Neck) in.

    I didn't do the install myself. I took it to a company who's work is usually immaculate, but my guitar never had this buzzing problem before and I know it's not my amp because I've tested all of my other guitars on it and it works fine.

    Would anyone have an idea as to how I can eliminate this buzz? At higher volume levels it's intolerably loud.

    Is it something perhaps with the wiring that took place during install?

      Well the SH-5 is a high output humbucker, so yes it'll make noise.

      My advice to a subject I really don't know much about:
      Ask the tech if they used the old wires. If they did then get it re-wired with new wiring.
      If that doesn't work... welcome to the world of high output humbuckers and look into a noise reducing unit, like the ISP Decimator mentioned above.
