I sheilded it, put a frickin automotive grade cable in for the bridge ground etc.
I am really anal about white nosie though. Too many years of listening to Phil Lesh and Greg Lake and reading about their intricate setups in Guitar Player ( before bass player come around)
And must say, my active jazz was quiet as air, even with 300 w at the ready.
Crisp, I;m undecided on the oem pups, the Aeros give me the sound I want ( 100% bridge/50%neck/50% tone).
That hollow, "woody" vintage sound is just not for me. Although I did dig on its vibe for a while, adn even played out like that thinking the mids would help live. ( I sometimes boost the mids for live shows). Worst live sound I've ever had.
Rethinking it crisp2u, maybe I will off the Lakland pups. Is yours a US? these apparently wont fit. Was goign to keep them around in case I ever sold the bass, since , as you see, most of y'all prefer the low mid heavy vintage sound. 4.10" 3.95" and I reused the covers.
But call Larry. That guy is a friggin' genius and very cool. I know he has some Lakkie j pups in stock.
NO dont call. I just got my phone bill. Calls to Hawaii are EXPENSIVE!
BTW, his wiring diagram was very very different from the oem setup. I didnt just undo one set of pups and put the next in. I had to redo much of the wiring. Better tone control now, less buzz when the pups are unbalanced.
If you email Larry, tell 'em Gene says hi. And thank him for helping me correct Lakland's problem!
