Try to make this as brief as possible. I got a new Country Gentleman last week - G6122T-59 VS. I can not get this guitar closer than five feet from my amp (I actually have three amps and the same results on all three). It develops a terrible noise. I can move the guitar about eight feet away from the amp and the noise will quieten down significantly or I can lay the guitar horizontally with the pickups pointed towards the ceiling and the noise will go away, or turn the master volume on the guitar off and it will get quite. Consider these things: I only play clean (I play fingerstyle) with a little bit of reverb, so I don't use pedals or effects. No, there is nothing wrong with the amp and no there is nothing wrong with the cord. Both have been thoroughly tested with other guitars - all quite. My cord is Mogami and my amps are Fishman Loudbox Artist, Vox AC15, and Roland Blues Cube Artist. I do not play loud. Volume is not past three on any of these. Both my Gretsch 5420 and 5620 played completely quite on these settings and amp and cord as well as my other guitars. I've also ran a ground wire from the chassis of the amp to various metal parts on the G6122, it doesn't change a thing. The sound is constant in that touching metal with your hand does not make it stop. I have talked to TV Jones about this and they seem to think there may be a cold solder joint inside. So I just wanted to know if anyone else has a G6122T59 and is your guitar quite or does it make noise. I realize I have a warranty, but rather than ship it back I would prefer to get it fixed myself. Also, putting headphones on and plugging the guitar into my Clarett interface also gives me noise.
