So two problems, both of them can be fixed I believe.
First one is when I adjust either volume or tone, I get static from the amp. Just a little bit. I turned the volume and tone knobs on the neck pickup and its pretty much gone away. Did the bridge pickuo and still there. I have some contact cleaner on the way…any thoughts? Going down the right path?
Second thing is I get a hum when I plug into the amp. The pickups are linear humbuckers, they shouldn’t have a hum. So I am thinking its a shielding issue. When I open her up and address the static, I plan to add copper tape where I can. Should I do the bottom of the pickguard too? It’s aluminum.
Anyway, am I looking at this the right way? What would you do?
