    Hello there all. I just purchased a Fender Rumble 75 watt today along with a Fender Jazz FSR Ill post a picture below so you know what I am working with. Anyway when I plug it in and play it sounds fine. When I take my fingers off the strings or anything metal on the guitar there is a buzzing sound in the amp. Could it be a non grounded wall jack? Or something else. It has been a while since I have played so thanks for any help.
  2. It's not your amp. You have a ground issue with your jazz bass. When you touch the strings you become the ground.

    How exactly do I resolve this?

    I think it is because I am running the amp through non grounded wall jacks I checked and they are not. I did not notice the problem at the Guitar Center when I played it there.

    Okay you are right, I tried it in a grounded jack and it is worse. Pretty disappointing. I contacted Fender to see what can be done.
