Thanks

As sound guy says, the bass seems to be picking up the high frequency power supplies for the LEDs. The fix is to shield the bass. This means you line the cavities where the controls and pickups are with grounded copper foil or conductive paint. Search online for guitar or bass shielding instructions. It's commonly needed to eliminate hum or other noise pickup. You can do it yourself with a bit of care (especially if you get the StewMac foil with conductive adhesive) or you can pay a tech to do it for you.
