Question about Epiphone Elitist Country Deluxe Hollow Body Electric Guitar

1 Answer

My Epiphone Dot just started humming really loudly when I plug it in - it stops humming when I touch the input jack. I assume it's a grounding issue on the input jack, but how do I get at it...it's INSIDE the guitar. (not a mechanical whiz, obviously. Bill

Make you a hook out of a coat hanger. Get inside and hook the wiring to the jack, take the nut off the jack and pull it up through the F hole. You can plug in to it a patch cord so you can pull it back through once fixed. Check out Guitarelectronics.com for a wiring diagram.

When I plug my lead into the jack input the guitar just makes a distorted noise a little like when you hold the end on a lead when plugged into an amp. I think maybe the jack inside has bent slightly...


If your unit has a battery, make sure you have fresh batteries. The jack ALSO serves to turn on the battery. If the jack is damaged or you use a TRS cable by mistake, the electronics will not be turned on and the sound will be very weak and distorted.

In middle of concert epiphone stopped, took it apart where plug goes in wire came off , but can't figure out where to solder it back, it is one wire with outside ground?


If it is a coax with a wire in the center and a shield outside, the wire will attach to the contact that touches the tip of your plug you insert. The shield will attaach to the part that touches the sleeve of you plug. inspect the jack carefully as they can be foolers. When stripping the insulation back un-braid the shield a little to be able to solder it to the jack. Use a pair of needlenose and a helper to keep soldering heat from going up the braid and melting the insulation of the internal wire. Test unit before putting cover on.

My bass buzzes when im trying to record. I plug it straight into the back of my 8 track and it buzzes. When I touch the metal conection were the jack goes or touch the jack the buzzing stops. This is also...


The cause is a lack of proper earth grounding in the 8 track so your jack-lead is acting like a radio aerial. The solution is simple - buy a Direct Injection (DI) box to place between the guitar and recorder.

Input jack is not grounded and makes loud buzzing sound it needs repair how do you fish it out through the f cut holes and then get it back in..


Can you remove the pickups and get your hands inside? Since wires are soldered to the jack and connected to the controls etc, you may have to remove all of the electronics.

When I plug in a hum will start and when I touch the jack an the guitar it stops humming . It's a yamaha acoustic electric.


You have a broken ground either on the jack, the plug or internal in the amp. Check both connections first. I think you will find it. If not open the amp and check for broken wires, cracked solder joints, etc. While checking the connections resolder all connections no matter what they look like. Let me know how you make out.

Constant buzzing in my 15 W amplifier


Make sure you have a ground prong on your power cord. Most input jacks nowadays are closed circuit. They have a switch built in that won't allow any sound without the cord plugged in. You may have a damaged jack that will give you a loud hiss, a loud hum or crackling depending on what volume your controls are set at.
