    Suggestions to Reduce Noisy P90's?

    I also have a very noisy basement and couldnt stand the buzz of my single coils on my strat so I bought Dimarzio noiseless and their very quiet.Then I bought a Jaguar and put Lollar p90s into it and now Im back to the hum and buzz but Im getting the hang of it using the volume and tone controls...

    Am I mad???Spending more on parts and labor than a Chinese guitars total worth

    Am I mad???Spending more on parts and labor than a Chinese guitars total worth

    Thats why I mentioned in my opening post the good qualities of the guitar first.As for deficiencies,firstly,on all my guitars I put locking tuners,for me its a must,Stew Mac says their vintage locking tuners are a drop in replacement.2nd,I wasnt happy with the stock pickups,so Lollar seems to be...

    agreed prolly not,or close to it,but not with my personal touch to it well pickups 220, tuners 70,electronics 50,so material is 340 and Im not into soldering pots,intonation,etc... it is a very cool guitar,not your run of the mill
