Loud buzzing when amp connects to guitar
I received an electric guitar pack for Christmas that included the amp and the cord to connect the guitar to the amp. When I plug in the amp, there is nothing unusual. But when the guitar is plugged in, a loud buzzing sound emits. I have replaced the amp and that has not helped. When the cord is unplugged from the guitar, the buzzing noise continues whether the cord is touching skin, clothing, etc. It does not stop for a few seconds. It is not the normal buzz of an amp, it is much louder. Do I need a new cord or is there a way to fix this that won't have me trekking to the store again?
