    I've installed a SPB-3 pickup and shielded the cavities sometime ago. It was scary quiet.
    This week I heard some clicking on the strings, like something was not grounded anymore. Replaced some solder points and fixed it but know the pickup makes bad noise if I touch the metal pole, which it didn't do before.

    I even replaced the layer of copper foil I had underneath the pickup to make sure the poles were grounded. I even check with the multimeter just to make sure and the first pole always marks 0 ohm. From pickup to anywhere from strings to jack also zero.

    So why would the pickup picking up noise when I touch it now?

    Hey there.
    I know I am late commenting but did you manage to solve the issue?
    I have the exact same problem.
