  1. alright, heres the situation. my pups on my jazz bass always seem to click every time you tap them or put your finger on em. its just on the bridge pup too. its not the strings hitting the pup either, cause even if i tap my finger on it, it clicks. help???

    Microphonic pickups, you can try to wax them (meaning fixating the coil wire with molten wax) or buy better pickups.
