    Is this a new bass, or used? If new, I would return it for a new one. Seems that there is a wiring issue, it is NOT supposed to make that noise when you touch the pickup. Your repairman might be able to find and fix the wiring issue quickly.

    You might try putting the pickup switch in a different position and see if it still buzzes.

    Also, your English is a lot better than my Dutch!

    Hi, sorry for posting to an old thread, but I think I may have a similar issue with my trbx305. It's hard to tell because the YouTube video in the original post seems to be deleted.

    I bought it new just a week ago and noticed recently that I get a buzzing sound when my fingers get into contact with the magnets on either pickups. It's very noticeable when the treble knob is dialed to medium or high, but it is not as loud as normally played notes. When I remove my fretting hand from the strings while touching a magnet it becomes much louder. On each pickup, only the row of magnets towards the fretboard is affected. Could this be the same issue?
