So I live right next to these BIG powerlines or electrical towers whatever you want to call them, and I’m gonna buy a jazz bass soon, a Fender MIM Geddy Lee jazz bass, and like most jazz basses, you get slight noise from the pickups when you start to have one on more than the other. The shop I tried the bass was right next to tram lines and had lots of LED lighting and stuff and all that, and made the pickups pretty noisy, not very loud, but enough to annoy you and want to never solo on one pickup only. The guy at the store said that that is as bad as it really gets, with all the activity and interference around. I though yeah it’s not a problem, I wouldn’t be like this at home... ...then I remembered those giant electrical towers at the end of my street. This MUST effect my pickups won’t it? I haven’t bought the bass yet but if I bring it home and find that the pickup noise is too bad, what are some solutions? All I can think of is a pup swap to a pair of noiseless. This seems like the most practical and most simple option I guess. The guy at the store said he could put them in for me if the noise really bothered me. I went to Bass Centre in Melbourne, Australia. I’m lucky enough to live here in the same city as Basscentre These guys absolutely ROCK!!! Service excellent, stock excellent, prices excellent. So yeah. That is my situation. What do you guys think?
