Hi everyone,
I know there are Godin enthusiasts out there, and I'm hoping that someone can answer a question I have about pickup hum. I've got an LG Signature and a Montreal, both with humbuckers and five-way switches. I've noticed that the Signature makes a fairly strong hum through my Traynor YCV40WR and my Tweed Champ reproduction, but the Montreal is much quieter, almost silent as a matter of fact. On the Signature, if I touch the selected pickup with my finger, the hum practically disappears. Is this normal? Should I alter the pickup in some way? Incidentally, both guitars sound wonderful, and I could continue playing the Signature as is, but am curious as to the difference.

Regards,

Greg

LG hum

in my experience, if you have hum that goes away when you touch the strings or a pickup, it means you have a grounding issue.... this could be anywhere in the wiring from the switch, pots or input jack.
