If you were playing at a low volume in the store and when you first got it home...and then turned it up at band practice and now have it at that volume...its possible you just didnt notice the hum due to that.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

could be, i thought of that so i turned all the knobs to zero and it still hums at the same volume

Okay, then thats different.

Is it plugged into the same wall socket as the first time you brought it home? If not, try a different wall socket......if that doesn't change it, then it could be bad power, a bad ground in the guitar, a microphonic preamp tube, etc
