fen am dlx 5 preamp with fralin single coils?

  1. I'm having some trouble trying to cancel out the annoying hum now that I installed fralin single coils into my five string Fender American Deluxe. I tried to look for noise canceling humbucker pickups for five strings from fralin but I don't think they offer them.

    I took it into a local guitar repair shop and the guy has experience in this in strats but not basses. I suggested maybe a dummy coil and we tried that but it didnt cancel the hum and it DID take away tone substancially.

    Anyone out there have any clue on how to cure the ol' hum blues?
    I figure if Laklands can have the exact same single coil fralins in their Joe Osborn 5 strings WITH active electronics, than so can I in my fender.
