    If I turn the tone up around 50% or greater, I get a humming sound from the amp. If I touch the strings or the control knob it pretty much goes away. (no hum when tone is down, even with the J pickup wide open). Just wondering if this is normal interference or if there might be a larger problem at hand. (just got this bass)

    Could be shielding. Could be a pot.
