I get a bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz....
when the guitar is not being played...

Does anyone have an idea what the problem might be or how do I get it gone... Without pluging the guitar out. (Sound Drive I use is tascam 8000, and i'm using a guitar line in.)
Is the guitar turned down? Or still turned up?
Could be the pickups humming, could be an earth loop. Are the pickups single-coil or humbuckers?
Try putting a noisegate over the channel so that it only releases when the guitar is playing.
And turn the guitar's volume down when it's not being played.
And check the grounding on your power cables.
