    All wiring is done per the schematic. The pickups work, just have directional hum much the same as you would expect when soloing a single coil pickup. (I have BOTH pickups on full)

    Standing sideways in front of the amp, dead quiet. Move one inch either way and the 60 cycle buzz starts in. Fully shielded compartment. Bridge ground wire has been disconnected (per EMG) and it makes no difference. These should be dead quiet. Anyone with any similar experience?
