Thanks in advance for any help.... I have a 2004 P-Bass Deluxe that I've had issues with the electronics for the past year. I've had a couple pots go bad and had them replaced. Most recently there was an intermittent loud ground type buzz that would seem to come and go on its own. A guitar tech friend of mine seems to have traced it to a lose/frayed connection to the preamp. He fixed that and said he hit all the ground points with the iron. The intermittent noise is thankfully gone... The problem I'm left with is.... If you inadvertently touch the pick-up poles, it makes terrible noise. Also, it seems to cause some weird noise if you just wave your hand in front of the PUPs not even touching the bass..... Any thoughts?
