Hi all, I bought a second hand VM jazz bass yesterday and took it jamming last night. I found that when the lead went a certain way there was that 'crackling' horrible noise and a loud humming. The kind of thing that happens when you have a dodgy lead. I switched leads to one I know works and still the same problem. Then... While we were playing a little later I started to hear a radio station coming through the amp (I thought I was losing my mind big time before I eventually told every body to shhhhh and they could hear it too!) Iv removed the control plate to see if there were any broken connections but I cant see any. I searched the forum and came across a .pdf showing how a VMJ should be wired and mine seems to be a little different. I was hoping to tap into the TB brain trust and see if anybody could shed a little light on what might be the cause. Iv taken pictures so hopefully they help diagnose the problem! Any help would be most appreciated!
