Jazz Bass Pickups


Recommended Posts

While I have read and researched quite a bit about pickup building I am not sure what tricks there are (besides proper sheilding) to building a passive jazz pickup that does not create hum. From what I gather if I wind two single coils, one bridge and one neck pickup- jazz style- and wire them to act as a humbucker that most interference will be avoided. However I would like to be able to pan between the two pickups without inviting unwanted hum into my signal chain. For my first pickup building project i would definitelt like to stay passive. Any suggstions or input on the subject would be much appreciated.
