ok guys, i have a 2000 fender p bass which is my first bass. I love it to death and has been the most reliable bass of all. just threw on a black pickguard and now she looks great(all black with r/w fretboard) plus badass II and SD basslines. now, everytime i plug her in, there is a great deal of noise going on and i need help on getting to the bottom of this problem. pickups too hot? shielding? pots? can you guys help me?
