Should a '70's P-Bass Do This?
I haven't had my old '73 P-Bass out of the case for a year or more, but went to a blues jam last night and dusted it off (literally). I noticed some FOD on one of the exposed pole-pieces and when I went to brush it off, got a pretty nasty hum. Obviously, not something I do in the course of typical playing but am curious if maybe that means there's an issue with the electronics on this bass that might lead to other issues down the line? Don't have any other P-Basses to try it on so am wondering what the group here has to say. The pickups are original btw. Thanks.
