I got a MIM standard tele recently. It has a lot of hum and its really annoying. If i turn around i can find a spot without hum, but switching to both pickups or touching metal on the guitar does nothing. I even shielded it and it didn't help. This leads me to believe the pickups are just messed up. I want to get keystones. Will this help?

the cable might be bad, the guitar's input jack might be loose.

It isn't the cable and I'll check the jack tmw, but would the jack being loose have these symptoms? Because that doesn't seem to make sense.

If your tele is buzzing you should answer it and say hello.

if it had been loose and the wires crossed then, it could cause these type of issues.

If it isn't a ground problem, then the pickups probably aren't properly potted. Switch them out for noiseless pickups.

Are your mains properly grounded? Single coils always pick up hum to some extent, that's natural. Electric heaters, fluorescent lights etc. make it workse. That's why people invented humbucking desings, to get rid of that noise.
