So I bought a 2007 Highway One FSR Strat with Custom Shop '69 Pups (This is my first single coil guitar, might I add). Love the tone and all, but the hum is driving me a bit nuts. I just had the frets redone by a luthier, so I think he would've told me if there's a grounding problem, but here's what's happening: There's a hum that goes away when I turn the volume down, so I know it's the guitar. The hum reduces when I rotate in a certain direction, which I know is also normal. However, the hum does NOT decrease when I touch the strings or any metal parts on the guitar. So, is this a grounding issue that I need to check out, or is it just the normal loud hum of vintage single coil pickups and I'm just not used to it? Any solutions? Last resort is changing the pickups. Note: CS '69 pups are not reverse wound, therefore there aren't any noise-cancelling positions.
