    This was happening to me,and i was about to let the shop fix it for $30.Before I did that I opened up the bass(took off the pickguard) and looked at all the wires.I saw a big gray wire had broken off a small metal plate.I soldered it back on and voila!It wasnt popping or humming again.I already had a solder gun but they go as cheap as $13 so if this happens to you,you should try to do it yourself.
  2. Ahh yes when the bass isn't grounded. feel good to save yourself $30 huh on something so simple.
