Why does my Washburn sound bad even after installing EMGs?
« on: November 19, 2018, 06:30:06 AM »
I have a Early 90s Washburn. I installed new EMGS into it. It sounded great and then all of a sudden it has a crunchy clean tone. I changed the battery, plugged a cheap guitar into same cable and amp no problem there. I sent the pickups back to EMG and they reported no problems found. I put in proven passives pickups and they have the same problem.

Where are the pickups placed? If too close to bracing, it will cause a problem.
Why do my fingers hurt?
