    I recently replaced the old jazz pickup in my bass yesterday due to the old one having low output. Now the bass has plenty of output but a lot of hum and noise. Also, the volume and tone knobs dont work as well and mainly act as an on off switch.This was my first pickup change and while im happy that it kind of worked, I would like it working close to perfectly. Im sure I soldered one of the wires wrong and would like to know where to solder the white wire to reduce hum and fix the controls. Oh and I did solder the black wire to the back of the volume pot if that makes a difference. Thanks
