    I have 3 Danelectro Longhorn basses. All but one of the basses buzzes like hell. Like really, really, really bad hum. Is there a simple fix? It seems to me like there must be a recurrent problem for these basses to buzz so loud. I am hoping I can send both of the buzzing basses off to someone i.e. Danelectro and they can fix this issue.

    I live in Atlanta, Ga. Any suggestions on where to get these basses fixed?

    Make sure you're wiring is correctly grounded and your cavities are all correctly shielded. Look for any loose/broken connections in your wiring too. Always do this first when you have a problem. I don't know of any good places in Atlanta (Mostly because I've never looked), but if its just a simple ground problem you should be able to do it yourself.

    First place I'd look is the wiring harness, and the second place I'd look is under the bridge to make sure the ground for the bridge is making contact with the metal parts. Danos hum sometimes because of single coils, but this sounds like you have a broken ground in there.
