    I put in SD SPB-2 pup in my MIM pbass. It buzzes like a deleted. I thought the ground connection was bad so I resoldered it, still buzzes. What do I do? My dad keeps saying to "create" a ground. What does he mean? If you reply "shielding", please explain. I'm not a noob, just uneducated.

    First of all, do not use profanity in your posts, the user agreement that you should have read when you joined these forums states that use of profanity is not allowed here.

    Secondly, since you are not a noob, you should be familiar with a so called Search function.
    Belive it or not, the issue of the "buzzing" bass has been discussed here at great lengths before.

    Check it out.
