All amplifiers should have coupling capacitors on their input, just as all preamps should have the same on their output.

yes ... but does this amp have any ?

is your guitar bridge properly grounded ?

do you have the same problem if connecting other instrument/guitar to your amp ?

or did you try your guitar on other amps ?
sometimes we know very little, and sometimes we know too much

This problem is very common when guitars with non-humbucking pickups, like P-90 eared soapbars, are plugged into a high-gain preamp with a lot of compression. Unless the input is shorted the compression and gain try to make the noise as loud as the signal.
