    my ibanez sdgr 300 buzzes whenever im not touching anything metal on the guitar, is my ground going into the bridge or what?

    im building a bass and i dont want to repeat the same mistake.
  2. Probably some faulty grounding inside the bass. Nothing too complicated, bring it to a luthier and he should spot it right away.

    Actually, what you described shows that the grounding is ok.
