I'm a newly converted bass player. Free from the chains of EMGs and modelling amps, I am new to the world of noise. The Jazz Special seemed like a nice bass so I bought the heck out of it. After a few weeks of layng down some truly brutal basslines I noticed a buzz. It might have been there from the beginning. I don't recall. I thought it was probably the bridge ground and i'd get to it when I change strings. The bridge ground was good. This noise occurs when the P bass pickup is selected and the TBX knob is turned up. When I touch the strings, the noise goes away. When the knob is turned down, there is no noise. No loose wires in the cavity. My question is...is this one of the joys of the P-Bass pickup, or am I doing it wrong?
