    I just installed new aguillar ag 4p/j-hc hum cancelling bass pickups in my american deluxe p bass. Which already has fenders active circuit. The bridge is dead silent but the neck pickup is humming. Also when i turn blend knob to 50/50 it sounds like a notched wah pedal. When i touch the bridge the hum goes away. However I play nylon tapewounds so they do not ground out when playing. I have to keep my palm on bridge to eliminate hum. Playing through an aguillar tone hammer 500/ sl 112 cab. Any ideas???

    Sounds like 2 issues.

    One pickup may be out of phase with the other to cause the cocked wah sound.

    The hum may be caused by either a broken ground wire to one of the pickups or incorrect wiring of the hum filled pickup.
