D10CEB "G" String Pick Up Not Working
« on: November 01, 2012, 08:23:32 PM »
Bought used for $130, guitar's in very good condition other than the  EQ300 does not amplify the "G" string, (the other five strings do amplify, and the volume;treble;mid;bass slides also work on those five). Is this a fixable thing or should I buy a new pick up?
I really like the sound and playability; sustain is pretty good and intonation is constant. I plan to use this as a travel/campfire instrument to protect my Taylor 814CE.
Also, any idea about its origin? SN is 9308107. I can't tell if it's solid top as the black color covers the sides of the sound hole.
Thanks in advance for the help.

CEB is not solid  D10SCE  is. Yours Cutout  Electric , Black is the color? Check that the saddle is all the way flat, not broke, or shimmed.  Tom.   :)

Tom
Thank you for your response. I restrung it and do remember that there were two acetate(1 clear, 1 black) shims below the saddle. I left them there but will remove and see how it is without them.
I'll report back in a couple of days.
Thanks again,
Wayne

Then I would make sure I put them back in the rite spot as color MAY make a difference.{density}.  Plus make sure the transducer wire is not hurt.  Tom  :)
