    Hello people, I have a Fender Jazz Bass (Mexico) with 2 single coils. Recently a strange noise/hum started, it is like something is not earthed!!! Infact, I can hear our next door band playing from my amp!!! A guitar tech told that is because of the single coils?!! I have a Thunderbird with HBs & it does not have this problem!!

    any ideas? or solutions?

    cheers

  4. Go to the Set Up forum and do a search for shielding. There's a lot of information available there.
