    It could be a couple of different problems. It could be a ground loop problem. If it is you could lift the ground on the DI (if it has a ground lift switch) I'm not familiar with your guitars, but most acoustics and electric guitars with single coil pickups (not humbuckers) can get hum from things like lamps etc. Changing your positioning (facing a different wall etc.) could help with that, but probably won't eliminate it entirely. Also if you're sitting in front of a CRT computer monitor you could be getting hum this way. Again, change your seating position for the best results but it won't be eliminated entirely. Good Luck!

    Dimmer controls on lighting also cause this.
