So, I have now got my Ideal combination........620/12 + Roland JC-40; FANTASTIC....but, I played a gig last night and encountered an issue that I've heard about, but have never come across myself before and, have no remedial knowledge of, and I'd appreciate some help please for when it happens again.

The issue was stage noise, (I believe it's called "60 cycle hum") that I understand is caused by single coil pickups interacting with venue lighting and other venue electrical circuits. Randomly moving around a couple of steps, negated the noise temporarily, confirming my suspicions that this was the problem. I understand that there may be two possible solutions, active guitar circuitry, or humbucker pickups.

Having now got EXACTLY the tone I want, what would now be the best way to go on my 620/12 in order to overcome this noise issue (as mentioned, this is only apparent in a few venues)....................
Would I lose that bright "jangle" by fitting humbuckers?
Is it possible to fit active circuitry to a 620/12?
Would a noise gate be a simple and effective solution, or (not really the answer I want), would it be best to just ignore and accept it at the few offending venues?

Thanks in advance, I REALLY would appreciate any advice anyone can offer.

Cheers.........Brian

Brian- left you a couple of pointers over on the other side...

A lot of us poke around in both. Not really much need to cross-post, fyi.
