Crate Amplifier

How do I get rid of guitar feedback?

I own a Fender Strat and I used a Crate amplifier. Whenever I turn up my distortion really high, I get a LOT of feedback, mostly squeaking. My other friends don't have this problem when they turn up gain all the way. I think it might be the guitar because it's old, or possibly the amp. How would I be able to fix this besides looking at repairs?

Luke, your friends are probably using humbucker pickups as compared to your single-coils, which will make a big difference as to how much gain can be tolerated without incurring feedback. You could either add more internal shielding to the pickup cavity, or switch to "stacked" humbuckers to minimize the noise; alternatively, you could learn to live with less distortion. Best regards, Dana
