Guitar PUs and phono PUs are both low value resistors at 50/60 Hz.

** The RIAA curve boost gain by 16 dB or 6.3 times 50/60Hz compared to mid frequencies. It also boost tube noise by the same amount.
There is NO audible supply frequency hum caused by stray C *inside* a 12AX7.
The OP has misconstrued the comment on the data sheet.
