Just got holdof one of these babies, with an evo7 in the neck and apaf7 in the bridge. Luuuuurvly
Problem with it is that I have inhereted some problems with the piezo. Now this is the score:
->There is no output
Basically, I have the wiring diagram, and have fixed the wiring thathad been done wrongon the piezo.It's quite late, so I haven't traced the full signal path, but it should befine. Kevan etc have heard of this problem, asit's RichardUK's guitar that is now mine. I knew I was inhereting the problem, so I'm cool with that.
Now, some diagnostics:
->Now, I get a signal spike if the battery gets plugged in.
->As far as I can see, there are no loose wires
->Magnetics work fine
Whatwould be cool is:
->Common problems people have heard of and encountered, and how they were fixed
->What are the chances of thepreamp circuit having been damaged?How easy are they to blow?
->Piezo's, has anyone heard of them failing? What if they have?Any techniques for checking?
->How would one go about checking the preamp is still OK?
->Any pitfalls thatsomeone could have fallen intowhile wiringit up,ie, blowing components?
->How difficult/expensive willit be to get an entire new preamp + circuit board?
->Anything else anyone can think of?
Any responses, ideas, workthroughs appreciated
oh, the wood and the grain on this example is lovely. Ihave already had several "accidents" LOL!
