    St Vincent bridge pickup hum issue..

    Hi all. Searched through the forum and didn't find any results for my issue. 2019 St Vincent HH. I am getting a terrible hum in my bridge pickup when running drive pedals. Now I realize these are hot pups, mine is 16.7 ohms, but without the noise gate on my 5150 pedal, it would be unbearable. No ground issues, gets quieter when lowering the volume. Not cables, tubes, not the amp.

    Am I stuck, or has anyone swapped out the pickup for a lower output one?

    Thanks,
    sK
