    I have a 5 string J bass with nordies (split coil) J pickups.
    I noticed a strange thing.
    On the bridge pickup the two outside pole pieces buzz pretty loud when I touch them and the 5th one up from the bottom buzzez too but not as loud.
    On the neck pickup only the first pole piece (outside of the G string) buzzes and not very loud.
    That happens no matter if the preamp (OBP1) is on or off.
    As long as I touch the strings it doesn't do that at all, and it is not really a problem, but I wonder if there is anything wrong with my wiring.
