I recently acquired a new Squier CV Jaguar, and I have to say I am 95% delighted with it. Made minor adjustments to the setup (truss rod needed a slight adjustment and the action needed lowering slightly) but it is lovely to play. I have mainly been playing a US P-bass recently so it's nice to have the P-bass tone with the addition of the Jazz pup at the bridge. The neck is lovely and has made me think seriously about getting a Jazz neck for the P - but that's another story.
The slight niggles I have are with the tuners which aren't as "solid" as the ones on my US P, but now I have tightened the large screw they are holding tune better than before. Also the pots don't feel as solid as the ones on my P (there is a very slight wobble to them). However the main bugbear at the moment is a very noticeable buzz when I am not touching the strings, bridge, or the metal plate on the front. Clearly something is not quite right with the electronics, but alas I am not electronically minded, and I don't own a soldering iron so I am not sure how to approach it. To add to the oddness, it buzzes through the Fender Bassman in the picture (my P bass doesn't, so that rules out cables, plug, wiring in that room etc), but it doesn't buzz through my Fender Rumble 40.
I have thought about upgrading the pots to a @KiOgon stacked pot arrangement (my P has his handiwork in it) but (a) I don't know if this would fix the buzzing on its own (although I am confident it would improve the feel and sound of the pots) and (b) is there anything easy I can try in the meantime to remedy it?
Thanks in advance!
