    Hey all,

    Just asking for some advice:
    I bought a Washburn t14 (P+J) earlier this month and it performs and sounds well, but i noticed today that the J-pup is slightly microphonic, as-in when i tap in with my fingers i can hear it in the amp. It also hums a bit when on distortion but i rarely ever use bass distortion.

    Now thing is i still have 11 more months of warranty on it, and i plan on gigging it soon, should i be worried or can this wait a bit? the shop i bought it from is quite far away from where i live.
