OK I know this isn't exactly technique or theory but if someone could answer me anyway I'd appreciate it. I have an ESP LTD B-50 and the J pickup on it isn't level with the strings, it's pushed in on one side and I can't pull it out with my fingers? My amp also seems to make a bit of noise(kind of a static sound) when I'm not playing anything. This goes away when I turn the tone all the way down on my bass. I was wondering if that sound is normal(or related to the pickup? And what should I do about the pickup, I couldn't just pull it out with my fingers and I'm new to this so I don't know what to do. Any suggestions or am I just worried for nothing?
