One thought on “Why is My Guitar Feeding Back? A Guitar Feedback Guide

  1. In my experience, lowering the pickups can do the exact opposite of what everyone says, decrease sustain and eliminate feedback. Everyone suggests the opposite, increase sustain and increase feedback by lowering? If a thicker string increases feedback how do you not also increase feedback by raising the pickup closer to a standard guage string? You do is the answer. You do increase feedback by raising the pickup closer to the string, not vice versa. Maybe you increase the chance of microphonics by having the pickup looser on the screws and in the body when it’s lower, but you do not otherwise increase the chance of feedback, all else being equal.

    Now lowering the pickup does increase dynamics like most people agree. I hear the same thing.
