If you are playing on carpet maybe that is a factor. When you rub around the carpet with your feet you will get static electricity. Idk though.

lol, back in the day i had an old tube pa system with knobs not sliders, the size of a can of clenched fist. when i tried to sing (i should never try and sing) and play thru my bass amp i would get shocked. I figured it was the musical god asking me to stop singing. but in reality the PA system had a short and was not grounded correctly.

Tech: what guitar boy said is very possible(static elect)but also depending on the house or place your playing at even if you have a ground on you plug,most likely if you have old wiring in the house with even a 200 amp service(Amp's don't matter)you may have a wiring system(in the house)that is wired as away that is called a controled Neutral.Control neutral is wired as if there is no positive or no negative,Basically there is no polarlity,meaning positive and negative doesn't matter even that it tech is grounded as far as the service is concerned ,from the service on (your amp or mike)is not grounded,So that in its self would intice stactic electric to find a ground through what ever means possible.I hope I helped.

Oh and what Notim said got me thinking, umm, that third little prong on most plugs nowadays, that grounds it. That is to prevent/reduce shocks. Do you have one of them on your plug? My guess is you do, but it probably does sound like your wiring...

check for a buzz in the amp. An annoying buzz could mean a ground problem.

He is correct... except all houses are wired to where either prong does not have a polarity. "A.C." current ocolates back and forth. that's why they have 3 prongs. The bottom one "if American style" is constant earth ground.

I've had this happen, except alot worse, I got electricuted to the point that I had an electrical burn. This was due to water leaked on the amp, and caused a short. The current searched for the easist path of ground, and that was through me to the strings. "Bridge is grounded, which causes strings to be a ground."

So may want to check to see if you have a short anywhere, and might want to test the socket to make sure your earth ground is in proper order.
