2013 Les Paul Tradional w/ Duncan Antiquities The issue is, this is by far the noisiest Les Paul I've ever owned. I've owned many and used Seth Lovers and Antiquities before and never had this kind of buzz. It obviously leaves once I touch metal, and I've checked the wiring for anything weird on multiple occassions and I just can't figure it out. It's even louder (when not grounding it) than my strat. One interesting thing I noticed today: if I rub something (the keys in my pocket, my knuckle...) across the back control plate, I can make an electrical scratchy sound come through. It's the weirdest thing! Right now my thoughts are on the larger orange drop caps that came in this model. I've already insured they are not touching the control plate, but I cant think of anything else that may cause the excessive noise and/or the weird scratching when I rub my knuckle across the back of the control plate. I've tested multiple locations, cables and straight into the amp. So, TGP members, do you have any suggestions? I've never had a Les Paul with this much buzz.
