Hey GMC!

I recently installed some new pickups in my Les Paul, the so called Rocksong set from Tonerider. Tonerider is supposed to be just as good as Dimarzio and SD, but half the price! I've got myself the set, all was well, and I installed them. For some reason the bridge pickup seemed to have les output then the neck, even after resoldering. I adjusted the height of the pickups a bit to match it, but I guess now it's a bit to close to the strings.

Now the problem tongue.gif I've got some major buzz! When I touch the strings, there's no problem and there's no buzz, but when I don't touch it at all it's buzzy as hell tongue.gif Only turning the volume to 0 helps then. This is for both the neck and the bridge pickup. I think I've wired and soldered them correctly, they're being grounded.

What could be the problem? Should I double check the grounding?
