    Guitar noise

    I would check grounds first. Especially the one in the tail stop. When you say noise is it the 60/50 cycle hum? Did you get the Epiphone new or used? Does the noise go away or change if rest your palm on the tail stop and the touch the strings with the same hand? Does it go away if the...

    Upgrading Strat Squier Pickups

    Also remember that DCR changes with temperature and it's really doesn't indicate the output of a pickup. It's a rough measurement. Inductance will be a good way to figure out the output.

    Cheap Practice Amp for home

    I would suggest a Boss Katana 50 combo. It's a decent modeling amp which you can use as a interface to the computer. You can get a lot of different sounds from it and can be played with headphones. If that's too expensive I would also look into an audio interface (via usb to computer)such...

    Peavy 6505mh
