    Default Problems with trem Jaguar

    The/my Jaguar USA re-issue '62 has a great tremolo, no doubt about that. However, when I even touch the arm of the trem, a lot of noise, rumble, comes out of the amp. Any amp. I wonder what that can be. At the moment I removed the arm in order to play without any noises. I don't think that's what they are made for... Is somebody willing to resolve my problem? Thanks very much! Rob.

    Wow, that sounds weird. Usually if one has a grounding problem, the buzzing will stop if you touch the tremolo or strings(by grounding it yourself). Is it just this guitar or all of your guitars do the same thing?

    Thanks Trouble! Now I found out I described the problem totally wrong, sorry about that. The guitar makes the buzzing, with or without the trem arm. It turned out the arm has nothing to do with the buzzing. When I touch the snares or the hole for the trem arm the buzzing stops! So you are right, it seems to be a grounding problem. But what can I do about that??

    Sorry, forgot to tell, that it is only this guitar, the Jaguar. No problems at all with any other guitar. Rob.

    Check and make sure your ground wire is secure, or it possibly has a cold solder joint. 8)

    You might want to take it to a tech. If your soldering skills aren't up to par, it is possible to make a bad situation worse. Another reason I would take it to the tech is that the Jag has a lot of switches n' stuff and there is a lot of solder joints in that particular axe. 8)
