The caramel series pickups I have in my Starfire have the unfortunate habit of squealing when I get too close to my amp. Of course, I'd love to be able to indulge in feedback every now and then, but this seems to prohibit that. Any ideas about how to mitigate the squealing? I've gotten some pretty nasty looks! Unlike the reputation of hollow body basses for uncontrollable feedback, my Starfire takes quite a bit of coaxing, whatever pickups are in it.
