It was about this time that I realised that I needed to be a bit more scientific with my trouble-shooting. Out came the multimeter and I couldn't for the life of me remember how to use it.
Digging back through my archives on this blog I found the post where I was wiring up my Kingcaster Electric Ukulele. I learnt so much doing that build... including how to tackle grounding issues.
What I needed to know was how to check for continuity in the circuit. If there were breaks in the circuit then this might be causing the buzzing.

I went through the whole circuit and to the best of my knowledge, everything looked good
