Buzzing In My Jazz Bass.


Recommended Posts

Sorry, but it probly is your pickup. I have had tone pots do this when the wrong capacitor was installed but more often, the pickup has become unpotted/loose in the windings or developed an insulation issue. Push stuff around with your finger while a string is played and see if dampening the pickup with your finger doesn't make it go byby. If it DOESN'T, jump your pot out to the setting that causes trouble. Open for treble, shorted for bass. Could be that cap is wrong. It has always been the pickup for me and I have no expanation for how the "tone" control brings it out. There are some really sharp guys on this forum that can tell you why but it is beyond me.
