What's the problem/how to solve it?

buy a better cord if you havent done so.
Check your ground.
What is grounding?
if the bass stops humming when you put your hand on something metal like the strings or the bridge, then its a grounding problem. There's a wire under the bridge and one from the pickup that connects to a metal lug under the pickguard. Alot of times the wire under your bridge can sink into the wood, causeing a poor ground connection.
How bad is the Hum? I have a Mark hoppus that is unshielded and it hums a little bit, especially if the treble is boosted on my amp, but nothing too bad.
I also have another P-bass that is fully shielded and even that hums a bit, its kind of a normal thing with fenders. I think they call it 60 cycle hum.
The hum seems a little more than a bit...how do I fix the grounding problem, exactly?
My Marcus Miler hums a little ditty when I tickles its belly
