Hi all, Just recently got some EMG sized SD Pegasus and Sentient from the U.S. Installed them last night in my 7 string, and they are really noisy. I have checked, and re-checked the earth points, bypassed the 5 way etc to rule out components but they are just very noisy. I'm using a relatively new Japanese made Volume pot, input jack from another Jap made Ibanez, I can't see anything component wise that would cause the hum. In contrast my other Prestige with Dimarzio Paf7, even with more gain is virtually noiseless in comparison. Do you think this is a pickup issue? Googling before it looks like other have complained about noise from SD pickups. Problem is I can't exactly send them back,, I mean I probably could but trying to prove the pickups are the issue would be hard and since no one here is Aus had the EMG sized versions I had to look overseas. So if it is the pickups what can I do about it? Wax dip them?
