I have a godin radiator and i was wondering if any one out there has the same problem as i do...this crazy feedbacking hum everytime i turn up my gain on my amp. Push the volume and gain and i get uncontrolable feedback.

What Gives?

recent [less likely to have earthing or sheilding problems] and have the electronics been altered [more likely to have earthing or sheilding problems] ..

Do you get this problem with another guitar? in which case it will be the amp. Do you get the problem if you stand further away from the amp.
Accuracy,you say? hmm interesting concept..

I read somewhere that the guitar's pickups get microphonic on high gain.

I am considering getting rid of my Gordon Smith GS2 and buying a Radiator. Am I stupid?

It's a mater of taste I love the sound of Gordon Smiths and would love their LP "Copy" (Graduate/G60). I've heard GSs up close [still yet to play one] and love their sound but never knowingly heard a Godin [i think the Radiators have "p90s" on them :confused:]- which have a good rep and everbody talks favourably about them, you could try taking your GS to the shop and testing it against a Godin.

Alternatively, sell me your GS for 50 quid and use the money for a down payment..:D

OK - I'll let you know when I lose my senses! ;)

I decided to keep the GS2, and sell my Seagull S6 folk-sized acoustic, to try and save up towards a Radiator. I found them for £269 in a shop in Crawley, Sussex, so I may be able to get something close to that for the Seagull.

I figured owning two acoustic guitars was at least 1 too many, seeing as I rarely play acoustic.
