    Any other GB75 owners have this
    Issue. It noisy in every setting. I'm thinking its a shoddy wiring job or is this preamp just super noisy.

    Never heard of that, may be a faulty pre, is the bass new?

    I got it in a trade, basically new. The thing is, it's not as noisy when I have the 3 way toggle in the center and the balance on the bridge pickup. All other settings...noise city. Also I don't recall it being so noisy when I first got it. So maybe the pre is going bad?
    I don't know, look's like a visit to 3rdcoast guitar service to have it checked out.

    I had a similar problem with a GB5, it was ok when I got it and it just started to be really noisy, then suddenly the pre just died... Got an A5 as replacement because GB5s were out of stock... No problem with the A5 so far, nor with a new G5 I got a couple of weeks ago...

    Just have it checked out
