    Hi,

    two problems

    first:

    i recently rewired my bass with some new pickups, seymour duncan spb2 and sjb2s

    they work fine but i played my bass yesterday and noticed that when I touch the controls when I am plugged in i get a buzzy sound from touching the metal

    is this a grounding problem?

    second:

    my tone pot isn't working. when i dial it up it just makes a faint scratchy buzzy sound. did i wire it wrong or maybe the pot is damaged??

    Any help would be appreciated
