    Hi
    Just received a brand new silversky in the past today. Sounds great but theres quite a lot of static noise that goes away when you touch some of the grounded metal parts of the guitar.
    I plugged my American fender strat in to compare and its definitely a lot less noisy.
    It reminds me of some old electrics I've had with the earth wire to the bridge missing.

    I can see the earth wire on the claw, that looks ok if not a little bit excessive on the solder side of things.

    Any thoughts / fixes? I don't really want to send it back. And I dont really want to open it up, its brand new!!!

    I think it would be a grounding problem if the noise didn't stop when touching the strings.

    There was another thread on this but I don't recall the resolution, try a search on the forum!

    Also, this is thread is posted in the wrong area, please delete and post in the PTC area.
