Hey all, so I’ve only been playing bass for like 8 months (just finished Josh’s course) and now have a bass problem… well I have multiple bass problems, the biggest problem is I now own multiple basses, and decided to upgrade one of them.
Long story details:
I recently bought a Fender players series Pbass and decided to upgrade the pickups, pots and bridge. I added a set of Darkmoon Hellhounds & wiring harness, which only have a single ground, but I noticed as I took out the stock pickups there was also ground to the bridge which was not on the new pickups and pots. As a newbie, not sure if that was important. I grounded the one wire that came from the wiring harness.
Short story details:
I am getting a lot of buzz (and not the happy kind) when I crank the tone knob clockwise, it disappears if I turn it counter clockwise. If I also touch the instrument cable the buzz ceases. Knowing F all about electronics, I am assuming that I also need to ground the input plug, but just want to confirm.
Thanks in advance.
