Coil buzz

I recently put a mightymite soapbar in my bc rich warlock and am getting a buzz when I touch the coils. I'm sure I've wired it properly and was wondering if any of you guys could shed some light on why it might be buzzing from contact with the coil.

"Take a break, & learn something else like guitar, keyboards, drums, vocals, or even recording. It'll help improve bass playing. I had a bass teacher who said to at least study classical guitar for a month. Checkout wholenote.com for guitar."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( mrsstellakwale@gmail.com ) for the full details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Stella.
