    Although I have replaced my MIM pups with noiseless Jbass pups, I did read about a cheap (read zero) mod. It involves carefully reversing the magnet on one pickup to cancel hum. You can go to the TBL website and do an archive search for the full details.
    BTW, the Badass really does make a significant difference in tone clarity and sustain.

    Does this really work?
  3. Shouldn't your pickups already be RWRP? Do they not humcancel when both volumes are turned up?

    If you have non-RWRP pickups, the easiest thing to do is put the coils in the covers upside down. You may need to drill a hole, or file a notch in the flatwork, to allow the wires to pass through, however. This is much safer than trying to remove the magnets. You will also need to wire one pickup backwards.
