Does your Gibson have a built-in preamp? If so your preamp may not be shielded to RF. To test it try using a 20 foot cable between your guitar and the transmitter. Then move the transmitter as far away as you can. Does the noise go down? If so you will need to shield your preamp.

Thanks for your reply. Just wondering how I go about doing that if the transmitter has the 4pin connector on the unit ie: jack to 4pin, not jack to jack.
My Gibby has an "active" pickup according to gibson, which requires a battery if that's any use?

You could use a double female barrel or you could use wire with allegator clips.
Actually just try unpluging the transmitter from the guitar and plug in the guitar in direct with a cable. Now with the transmitter still turned on and a cable inserted in it get it near your guitar. You won't even need the receiver at this point.
Do you hear the noise come up? I suspect you will as the built-in preamp is not RF resistant.
