What you're describing seems a bit excessive. Granted, single coils hum but they shouldn't be this bad. I'm betting it's not well grounded.

Where I play at home has a lot of electrical noise but I don't have other options. It's a familiar noise, tho. I replaced the switch in my SG a couple of days ago and when I plugged in to test, I could hear noise I usually don't get from the humbuckers. Sure enough, I found a loose ground.
