    If I touch the poles on E and A string (either p'up) there is noise...if I touch the poles on D and G there is NO Noise. Does this mean something?

    Here are some specs...SX Jazz, completely shielded and grounded, Dimarzio p'ups...SX pots, Switchcraft Jack...

    Let me know if you need to know anything else...

    Thanks in advance.

    Do all the strings produce sound through the amp? If yes, don't worry about it.

    Edit: I just noticed you have DiMarzios. Are these HB JB pickups? Maybe you wired them wrong and are only getting half of each pickup. You should hear a click if it's plugged in (neck and strings not required) and you touch the poles with a screwdriver.

    If it works plugged in let it eat.
