F bass owners

  1. Do any F Bass owners have issues with noise? I have a hum/ high buzzing with my BF%. I have tried contact cleaner but have had no results. Anyone know about this?

    My F bass is dead quiet unless i am in single coil mode and both pups arent the same volume- as in all single coil basses- but i run mine in humbucking mode 99% of the time
    I am also a dealer fo F basses and i havent heard the noise from any of them- you should drop George an email about this

    Same here. It's been quiet, except when in single coil mode with one pick up favored, or soloed - just like with a Jazz Bass.
  4. I talked to George and he said it might be defective pickup leads. Thanks for the replies.

    Have you tried switching cables, amps and speakers to isolate the problem? It might not be the bass.

    I haven't noticed anything unusual, as far as noise either. But I do get quite a bit of hum when I'm practicing and get close to one of my power amps.

    F's are under a lifetime warranty. Even if you're not the original owner. George is cool and will get it right if you ship him the bass
