S470 humming after pup change
I have had some Ibanez Hot Grinders from an Ibanez S Prestige fitted to my Ibanez S470. Now the guitar hums when I am using a lot of gain. NOTE: This only happens with the bridge pup.
If I take the cover off and put my finger on the jack socket the hum completely disappears, if I touch the back of the tone pot the humming goes too, also there are two wires (red and white) that are taped together, if I squeeze them the humming gets louder.
The shop that did the job has asked me to take it back but I just don't have time at the moment.
I can use a soldering iron so if someone can point me in the right direction I'll have a go.
