    Today I noticed that the E/A side of my Duncan SPB1 pups are suddenly buzzing if I touch the pole pieces. I've checked the grounds with a meter and have complete continuity, all connections are solid. Any ideas? I played this bass last week with no issues, it has been very quiet since I installed the pups two years ago.

    I just had this exact problem on aReverend Fellowship model, which uses a single split coil Precision style pickup. Ken Haas at Reverend was all over it and sent me a new pickup. Problem solved. I had taken the time to swap the two coils and the buzz followed the coil. Seriously! This was in the last week.
