    I was doing a mod to my bass the other day, nothing major-just soldering some stuff to the pots.

    and when i plugged it in to check if it worked or not, it worked for a bit, then when i moved it, i got the radio coming out of my amp!

    Im pretty sure it was the radio since it was a guy talking. Im assuming something touched that wasent supposed to and turned my pickups into a aerial or something?

    has this happened to anyone else

    yup happens all the time to unmodded basses, the cable, coil windings on the pickuck all react with certain frequencys and pick up the radio. Happened to me today in fact and the other day in the music room at school
