    sounds like you're getting some crazy interference from a phone/laptop/other electronic device. Maybe try moving some stuff around and see if it stops?

    what can the interfering suspects be? I pray;because if that's what it is, I would be happy. I love this bass.


    GASS, Has caused me so much stress, I really need to stop buying instruments on credit.

    laptop, phone, tv, gaming console, radio, speakers, anything like that.
     
  5. Is it the Epiphone model? My Epiphone Toby suffered from extremely low output pickups, which I compensated by turning up the gain, which unfortunately amplified the hum to horrible levels. Problem persisted until the pickups were changed to split coil J type.

    If its the lower of the two Epi Tobies than I believe it has straight single coils pickups as well, those will hum.
