It was suggested that I split a thread I posted earlier into different areas so here goes. I am upgrading my Yamaha bass I have the following two issues after installing my new pickups. (1) I purchased the EMG Geezer Butler Signature PJ set (GZR-PJ) from them. Great kit for the price. The issue I have is that I am getting a static buzz if I touch the adjustment screw or the cover on the top split pickup on the neck. This "buzz" goes away if I touch the strings. the bridge and lower split pickup are dead quiet when I touch them. I have spoken with a support tech at EMG and he has seen my wiring and all is well there. (The solderless setup on the pots is pretty stupid proof when connecting the wires.) He has verified all is connected properly and I show a ground throughout the setup. Again it is only this side of the split pickup. nothing else makes a peep. My question before I tear the bass apart and shield the entire thing hoping this fixes it is this... As this is the only pickup, of the three on this bass, without the EMG logo on it would it be possible that I have it installed 180 deg rotated? If so do you think this would cause the issue? (2) The last thing that worries me is this... If I turn the volume all the way down on the split pickups the "buzz" goes away, and I get really nice sound through the bridge pickup. If I turn the bridge down all the way and turn up the neck split pickup the buzz returns when I touch the cover/adjustment screw as noted above. what worries me is that when I pluck the strings I get no sound at all other than the buzz if I touch the cover/screw. This leads me to believe that either the top pickup is 180 deg out and the magnetic fields are doing something wonky to mess with the signal capture or the pot is the culprit. Im really lost on this one.Any help would be great.
