it sounds like something is not grounded. Any loose wires?
And, when does the noiseo ccur? With what rig/setup?

I had a brand new dean guitar (off of ebay)and when it was plugged in to an amp and as soon as one would touch the strings it hum and bad, it was unplayable, take your fingers off not a sound. First thing I checked was the ground, all seemed fine, I then looked at the 1/4 jack and realized that the wires were reversed, I moved the wire around and all is well, guitar plays great now. Hope this helps!

What kind of noise? Hum? Hiss? White noise?

Check under the saddle. My p10e started to get a ground hum when the piezo was selected and one day I was cleaning and the saddle fell out, there was no shim whatsoever under the saddle and it worn the protective shielding right off. I had to replace the piezo, which was next to impossible as Parker stopped selling them and changed the piezo used before they did, but that might be the problem

Huh, that's an interesting set of problems. Never heard of that one before. [:0]

Yeah it is actually on the Fishman website, they said that is the only reason why their acoustic pick-ups should have a grounding issue is because of that. Pulled the thing out and sure enough that was the case.

Great info. My brothers is doing this now. It's gotten so bad it can't be played with both pickups on. I though it was the neck pickup but this could be the issue with the piezo. I'll check it out. I hope I don't have to replace the piezo and I can just re shield it.
