    I have a strange thing going on with my new p bass. When run the palm of my hand down the back of the neck I get a crackling popping noise even with the volume off. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    It might be Rice Krispies, though without a snap I can't be certain ;)

    This is expensive but I believe it will solve your problem.

    :DThanks guys you've been most helpful:D

    Bad part is it happens all the time. I'll have a look under the hood maybe a bad solder joint. Just weird.
  8. I had a similar issue, turned out to be a bad jack. Try twisting the plug and see if that makes the same noises.
