So, i have the cheaper Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar. Here is a link to it. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/...special/h71306
The problem i am having is that when ever i plug into my bass rig setup up, using a acoustic B300H head with a ampeg 250 portabass cab, i get this insane hissing sound when ever i am not playing and sometimes when i am playing. I have had it check out and all of the electronics and wiring in it are fine. Now i always get asked if it is the bass head but the head is brand new i brought 2 weeks ago and the cab is older like 10 years old. Is it possible that it is my cab? it is not any cables because i replaced all the cables last week and still have the same noise.
I was also told that the pickups on the bass were meant to do that and if i did not like it just change the pickups. If this is the case what pickups should i change too. I play a little bit of disco and funk. But mainly pop punk/indie music.
