You are looking at the WRONG end of the guitar cable. You have a VERY unsafe guitar amplifier OR the mixer that is connected to that mic has an UNSAFE grounding condition.

If your guitar amp is an old one that has a two wire cord and a switch you change to reduce hum, take it in to have a three wire power cord installed IMMEDIATELY. Only plug into grounded receptacles. This is needed to reduce electrical noise and hum but MORE importantly is personel safety.

If the problem is with the mixer and the electrical service to the mixer, better get a professional in to analyze the problem before somebody is injured.

AS A START do this: VERIFY that ALL interconnected equipment INCLUDING your guitar amp iis powered from the same source or receptacle. This includes the venue power amps, mixer, any CD players, etc. Professionals run power back from the stage source to the mixer alongside their snake to avoid just the problem you are seeing. When they need more power at a venue, a power distribution box is used that conditions the building power and insures grounding.

I`ve just bought a new Fender Telecaster Deluxe. When I plug it into my amp there`s a slight hissing hum. When I touch the strings it stops. I`ve tried it through a different amp & changed leads so

you may have a ground loop problem and when you touch the strings you complete the ground loop so the noise dissapears. make sure the amp is plugged into a proper grounded outlet. also there is an aftermarket ground plate that goes under the pick guard. that is what I put on mine to cut the emf way down. if you bought the guitar from a dealer take it back to the store and ask them why you are getting so much noise.

Oops you may have to replace the switch, it sounds like you have worn it out. You may be able to find a replacement on e-bay at a decent price or at your local Fender Dealer.
