equaliser?
« on: August 19, 2010, 04:20:58 PM »
I just perchaised a washburn woodstock serialnumber 83137. The equaliser (volume, treble, bass-system) does not work. Anybody know if this can be found in any shop?

Is that one of the old models that required a dummy plug?

If it's one of the older ones, it's a passive system, no batteries. It has to use a dummy plug if you use the xlr plug. Try tracing down the wires, and see if something is loose.

thank you! There is no battery. The input is not working. It feels like there is not any resistence when you plug in.

okay, we'll try that!
And also I can't find the serial number. Only 'george washburn woodstock' on the inside.
There is also an extra element in the neck, near the sound hole, by the last fret (sorry my, english is not very good). I wonder if this was made like this, or the last owner build it in?

Thankk u and greetings,
Audrey

Sounds like you might need a new jack.  Equis II was the first EQ (~1991) that used an XLR plug.  Yours is older.  Also, it sounds like you may have a Woodstock Studio, which added another pickup in the fretboard.  Does the EQ have 2 knobs and a slider surrounded by what looks like wood?  Pics will help.
