    I have a MIM Jazz Deluxe with Bartolini 57j single coils and a J Retro pre amp. I have everything shielded. I get a slight buzz while playing and even worse with both hands removed. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.:help:

    Sounds like grounding issues, to me anyway.

    Also, If those barts are true singlecoils there WILL be some amount of cycle 60 hum no matter what.

    I understand the 60 cycle hum. Not the same thing.
