My sons friend came over with his MIM yesterday upset because of static. My son thought I could fix it for him. Initially I thought it was probably pick guard static. Plugged it in. Got static from touching the pickup adjustment screws, not all but some. Played the guitar got the clear clean single coil sound but with it there was static, all positions. When I touched the output jack the static went away. I rubbed down the scratch plate with a dryer sheet. Tuned her back up and same thing. I am sorry I did not take pictures. Here are some things I observed. 57/62 set. Pickup mounting screws are touching foil on the scratchplate. Ground went to a screw in the bottom of the cavity instead of to the trem claw (where I usually go with this wire). Soldering job was a little sloppy but nothing was loose. Blender mod was wired. The 'blender' knob was probably modified with a razor 'no load' was written in sharpie. (the volume, tone and blender knob all worked correctly except for the static) Touching the output jack might have made the hiss subside. Only hisses when touching stuff or playing Static hiss is in all positions. The static was consistent when playing but separate from the guitar signal, the pickup signal is clear and the static sits beside it if that makes sense. If anybody knows some things I can look at before I re wire the whole thing that would be great. Just to be clear this is not 60 cycle hum.
