Hello, this is my first post, but I read through this forum quite often. Hopefully I've posted this in the correct section. I recently purchased a new Fender Jaguar Modern Player (MP) bass online. I was thrilled with the quality of construction as far as the body and neck. And, I love the overall sound...a very good Fender P-bass sound. However, I've noticed two issues: 1) I hear a little line noise/hum with the J-pup turned up all of the way. Maybe this is just standard with the J pup and/or guitar? This is not a huge concern, but I would like to know if this is common for this guitar. 2) The bigger issue...I hear alot of what seems to be unshielded hum from the tone control. The more I turned it up, the more pronounced. I say unshielded because as long as I have two hands on the strings (or left hand on strings and right hand resting on the bridge), the noise goes away. This would probably not be noticed when playing live, but it is very pronounced and a bit annoying when playing solo, as you can hear the hum/static coming in and out as my hands come off the strings. I'm not sure I'd want to record with it either because of this. I have tried different guitar cords and amps, to no avail. The only thing I have not tried is a different electric A/C circuit. I suppose my house electricity could be the culprit (although my active Ibanez bass with humbuckers does not have this problem). Does anyone else have this guitar? Have you experienced the same thing? I really love this guitar and I want to keep it. But, I would like to know if I need to return for exchange/repair. If this is standard, I would not mind modding it slightly to get rid of the hum. Finally, let me say that I am not really familiar with the behavior of Fender non-active basses (P or J pups). So, I don't know what noises/behavior are "standard" and I'm not familiar with common Fender issues. I have read about some shielding issues with Fender Jazz basses (and some solutions), and maybe this is related? I guess I would just like to know if this a defect or a common occurance, and possible solutions. Thank you!
