    I own Three Schecters, a Stilletto elite 5, an AB-5 plus and a SB-1FL. All active with EMG's. They are all quiet when no notes are played but when I play any notes they get pretty noisy from residual noise ( TV, Flourescent lighting, Computer, ETC.) Is there anything I can do to quiet them down? Would it help to add shielding to the electronics cavity?

    ...if you get too close to your computer, you will have a distinctive hum, more so than from any other source. EMGs are sometimes unforgiving.
