    Ok, so first off, I'll start off with what is wrong. I noticed recently, on my ESP M-4 that the bridge (J-pickup) is now making noise. I never noticed it before the other day, and it's quite annoying. I know it's only that pickup, because I have a three way switch and when I solo the P pickup, the noise goes away, but when I have the J selected at all (either solo, or along with the P) it's there. Are there any known remdies for this, besides the obvious replacing the pickup? Right now with $25 to spend, bowling tomorrow and the lady to buy something for V-day, I don't have much to play with in that respect. Any help?
