This is a very common problem that I have repaired for many friends. Sometimes the guitar jack becomes loose and gets rotated to the point where the wire breaks and/or touches the cord plug when it's inserted into the jack. You need to remove the access plate/panel at the back of the guitar body and see if the wire is broke or twisted. You may only have to loosen the jack retaining nut and rotate the jack to get the twist out or you may have to remove the jack and resolder the wire back in place. If its broke make sure to solder back on the proper terminal--the one with solder already on it and not the one that the cord plug touches when its inserted. Retighten the jack nut by firmly holding the jack from access side so it doesn't rotate again and cause that undesirable STATIC sound. Hope this helps.

What Epiphone model did I purchase?


Sounds like perhaps a Les Paul Special II, but more detail is needed to say for sure. There was a lot of variation in their Les Paul models. Posting a photo of both sides and the headstock is best.

-Has the guitar any binding, and what colour?
-Is the back of the guitar white or all black?
-Exactly what is on the front of the headstock, 'Epiphone', the 4-diamond logo, anything else?

My amp makes this static noise wich goes off as soon as i touch one of the strings or the metal part of the guitar cable. What can i do to make the noise disapear


This is a common problem... Make sure your amp is plugged into a three wire grounded receptacle. Keep the guitar away from magnetic fields of transformers in amps and effects units. Make sure you have a high quality guitar cable.

Guitar cable was under the amp, i picked up the guitar and it pulled the jack. it picks up static but not sound


The cable has a broken wire. If it's the type cable which allows unscrewing the jack, take it apart and look for a loose / broken connection. Repair would be to solder it back. If the jacks on the cord are the molded type, the most practical solution is to replace it.

I have an epiphone ea7p professional guitar. It has a matching amplifier with a special 6 prong plug for this guitar. I need a new 6 prong plug. I would like to buy the entire cord that connects from...


Amazing guitar!

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find the specialized plug you need. Being 1 out of less than 400, it is doubtful that they are still being made. However; any decent music shop will be able to repair your old plug.

How do i choice to buy a custom epiphone les paul


If you are on a limited budget then get a standard Epiphone Les Paul. The Custom is not much better. If you have a little more to spend then I recommend getting a new or used Gibson Les Paul Studio.

Narrowing down which guitar to buy is completely opinion-based. You need to try multiple guitars to find one you like best since they all feel a little different.

Les paul making wierd noises


Unless you are wanting to use the Nanomag, I'd just get it taken out of the signal. You should be able to bypass it anyways.

Guitar astat


To me this is a natural reaction to having the volume all the way up, when you touch the strings your stopping any vibration from taking place there by stopping the static, or the other problem could be that your pickups are set up much to close to your strings, try to lower them and see what happens, a bad cord could also be the culprite.

Static Noise from guitar amp.


I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.
