1 Ibanez Sweetheart Talman is buzzing BAD!
The problem is that there is always a buzzing sound when the guitar is plugged in. The more treble I use the louder and more distinct the buzz gets. It is probably a bad preamp. So....

If I have to replace the preamp...

1. Can I upgrade to a better one? (currently a AEQ200M)
2. Where do I get one?
3. Will I have to have my guitar tech install it?

Thanks.

No one has ever had this problem before? Seriously?

Are you playing it near your computer screen?

Yes, but not ridicoulously close or anything. Like I said, when I turn the pre-amp treble up it pretty much controls the buzz volume.

Have you tried to plug to another power outlet away from the current one ?

Is there a difference with the buzz sound when you touch metallic parts of the guitar ?
