Fellow Double Edge owners,
A month or so ago, I bought a RG2020XTB
. I LOVE it, but because I was unable to blend the piezos with the mag pickups, I performed the JemSite certified 'KJG Mod' to it (see KJG MOD
). I am now able to blend the piezos and Mags, which is too cool! Now the problem...I then noticed that when I was just using the piezos, that I could hear some bleed over into the mag output into my amp. The noise gate was opening, even when the drummer would hit a drum. I was about to undo the mod, when I purchased my second Double Edge equipped guitar, a S2020XAV
! I took it to practice and noticed that it has the same problem BEFORE
doing any mods to it.
So it is not an issue with the mod, but with the Double Edge circuitry. The problem occurs using either two separate mono cords, or a Y-cord into a stereo into a Y-cord and to my separate amps.
Have any of you noticed this problem? I can't have the only two guitars in the world with this problem. And, our band doesn't play that
loud. It's probably not a big enough problem to be that concerned. It's just a little (a lot) annoying.
