SOURCE: Fender Jazz Bass E string saddle vibrates down

Hi Mike,

If the sound is like a string vibrating against something, ensure that is not strings (usually G) vibrating against the bridge.

Ensure that the two screw on the saddle are well in place.

Ensure also that the vibration is not coming from a string vibrating against the frets, in that case you can fix the problem by adjusting the action and rectifying the bow of the neck.

In either case, if the sadde and neck bow are cause of vibration, try tweaking the saddles a little, and lowering the position of the saddle a bit downward. Try also to rectify the neck. turning the apposite screw.

To me this is a natural reaction to having the volume all the way up, when you touch the strings your stopping any vibration from taking place there by stopping the static, or the other problem could be that your pickups are set up much to close to your strings, try to lower them and see what happens, a bad cord could also be the culprite.

might just be the pickups and their age. or a faulty cable

SOURCE: I need the part number

These are actually (unfortunately) unavailable for purchase, but if you take it to any local guitar tech, they'll be able to make you a new one from a saddle blank. It shouldn't cost more than $20.

You could try boosting the bass and reducing the highs on the EQ setting, however there MAY be a probllem with the pickup, not the preamp.

My RR3 Jackson Guitar has corrupt sound.


It may be the nylon strings are not compatible with your pickup. The pickups rely on varying magnetic fields from the strings to produce the sound- nylon is not magnetic unless doped with a ferrous material.

Either find doped strings, find a way to dope them or switch back to steel.

You can check the pickups themselves indirectly with a soldering gun or tape head demagnetizer held close to them- you will hear the line frequency quite well if the pickup is working.

D10sce will not work when plugged into the amp. the cord is nine ( works with my electric.) battery is new. when you turn up the volume on the controll, you can hear it in the amp, just no pick up sound.t


SUBSTITUTE Change the guitar for a friends to see if the amp is really OK. Try your guitar in a friends amp to see if the guitar is OK If the guitar is at fault its either the battery, the connection cord, the little pre amp in the guitar body (you can't fix that) or you have put nylon strings on the guitar which needs stell strings for the pickup to work. Good luck

The d string on my yamaha ev 204 electric violin has no volume w/ the volume is turned up . Any suggestions?


Hello, what a great violin to own, I am jealous. Each string on your violin has a pickup sensor under it. So, what you have are 4 sensors (one for each string) and the signals are then fed into your violin's electronics and mixed there to provide a wonderful rich sound. The sensor under the D string has a problem. I would look there first and in the electronics package last. The best advice I can offer is this, I also am a musician and play violin and 12 string ovation guitar. I have worked on both my instruments, unless you are very skilled in your knowledge of electronics and the delicate work on the sensors on your violin, I would take it to a craftsman (person) that has the skills to change out the sensor. Sometimes it can be a bad solder connection in the electronics, especially with the vibrations that an instrument causes, again, this would be for someone extremely skilled in instrument repair.

I have an Ibanez Art 100 and I am having trouble tuning the G string. It seems to sound sour and either a little flat or sharp.


Trace the string from the body to the tuning peg, making sure that there isn't anything rubbing and that the string is routed properly. Compare it's routing to your other strings. When you get to the tuning peg, note how many tines the string goes around the peg. It should go around at least three times (more is better, to a point), and wrap above and below the tail of the string to friction lock it to the peg. If it isn't locked in, the string will loosen itself over a period of time, making it impossible to keep it tuned.
Hope this helps! Regards, --W/D--

What kind of strings are best for washburn X 10


the washburn X10 is an electric guitar.

first thing you you want to make sure of is that you ask for electric guitar strings

next consider what kind of music your are playing...

heavier music or really moody warm tones your going to want thicker strings

med to heavy guage

if you want clear crisp tones than go with lighter guage

light to med

lighter guages are also easier on the finger tips.

the sizes usually refer the the smallest string on the bottom or the first string.

9 is the light 10-11 is med 12 is heavy

you might also want to consider nylon coated strings

they last longer

have great tone

easy on the fnger tips

but they cost more

Electric guitar pick up doesnt work?


se3veral things have to be ruled out, start with the cord that your using to your amp, is it good? next is the volume on both the guitar and amp also good, the last thing that should be wrong is the pickup itself unless a wire is broken off of it, you can usally check this from somewhere on the back of the guitar, if all the wires are good, check the two volume controls and on the back of the amp check the wires going to the speaker.

Electric Guitar wont play through Amp


the buzzing is indicative of an open ground connection, check the cord by substitution or with an ohm meter, if the cord is good look at the connections to the jack inside the amp ( im guessing you built the amp from a kit). Is this a solid state amplifier? Tube amps have lethal votages and should not be experimented on without knowledge of electronic safety. Also if there is more than one input to the amp try plugging the guitar into another one and see if its still the same.
