    Cutlass SSS noise in all positions except bridge

    Maybe it's just because I haven't used single coils for a while but I noticed buzz in my Cutlass. The bridge single coil is dead quiet but all the other positions have a buzz or hum that mostly goes away when touching a grounding point like the bridge.

    There are plenty of songs where I have both hands off the guitar briefly and it's loud enough to be noticeable. Seems like an obvious grounding issue but wanted to see if anyone else with an SSS has the same experience before contact CS.

    I had a buzzing problem with the neck pickup on my Cutlass SSS. Swapped it out with a new one and problem solved.
