  • G&L SB-2 Electronics Issues

    I was wondering if this is an electronic problem I may have to take for repair. When I have high gain or distortion applied to my G&L SB-2 bass there is a hissing or fizzing sound when not playing or playing. I noticed when I place my hand around either of the volume knobs it is quiet or pull the cord on the input jack in a slanted direction it is quiet. I tried my ESP LTD TA-600 bass and do not have these issues of a hiss.

    Also I do not know if this caused by  G&L Magnetic Field split coil and G&L Magnetic Field single coil pickups, since my other bass with the EMG pickups is quiet.

    I do not want to be a fool and take my bass for an electronic repair if this is how it is supposed to sound.

    Does it go away when you touch the strings? If so, the instrument is grounded into the bridge and it is normal.
