To adjust the pick up height on the guitar, simply turn the single screw on each side of the pickup. Clockwise to lower the pickup and counter clockwise to raise the pickup. Hope this Helps!!

Is it the guitar or the amp


Hi, Sounds like you have a bad cable to your amp. Try swapping out the cable. If that is not the problem, The pickup maybe bad.
Hope that helps.

Hey my ax260 strings rattle alot mainly the bass strings? and every time i touch the coil tap knob a ugly sound comes from the amp its not even a year old yet and never been knocked over or droped could...


Strings "rattling" is usually guitar setup. This has to do with string height and POSSIBLY the neck truss rod. For the latter, have a guitar shop set it up for you. Hum from touching a knob is likely a broken ground wire in the cavity of the guitar. Also view videos on YouTube search "Guitar setup"

My ltd deluxe ec-1000(vintage black) is not producing any distortion on my Marshall mg100hdfx. this is the first time i have had an active pickup guitar, i put a new 9v battery in it but still no change in...


Distortion is not produced in the guitar. Distortion is generated in the amp by circuitry that increses the gain until the waveforms "flat top". This creates higher harmonics and a buzzy sound. If you are getting a very low output from your guitar it is possible that you don't have enough output to get the distortion in the amp to work. Other settings in the guitar add harmonics by mixing more than one pickup. This is not ditortion but adding these harmonics changes the sound immensly.
LOOK AT THIS SITE AND FIND A SCHEMATIC THAT MATCHES THE RESOURCES OF YOUR GUITAR... You might be able to figure where the wire goes... It may be a ground.

Not getting enough distortion(esp ltd ax-260)


Hi,

It's not your pickups. It would be nearly impossible to loosen a wire inside of your guitar by having even heavier than your amp head drop on it. It is most likely your volume pot. The post, if hit hard enough, can virtually distroy your pots. Another possibility could be your jack, al though considering where it's located on your guitar, it would be very hard to damage it by having something drop onto it.

There is little else that could be the problem. Hopefully you didn't damage your guitar too badly. If the guitar was in front of me, it would be a relatively easy diagnosis.

Fortunately, volume and tone pots are inexpensive, and if you're handy with a soldering iron (or you have a friend that is) it is an easy install with four to six solder points, depending on your configuration. I don't want to assume it's a stock setup, but when you take off the rear electronics cover, you will immediately see what configuration you have.

If you have possibly damaged the pickup bobbins (assuming you have the stock humbuckers in your guitar), you would be able to see the damage, It would either look damaged,or work correctly. As you know bobbuns are simply wound wire, and that's not easy to damage. Plus your strings provide a minimal amount of protection, unless your amp head slammed it very hard. Start by replacing the volume pot. Cheapest parts first. There is no way to test the pot with anything like a potentiometer, because there is virtually no voltage that passes through the pot. Additionally, unless you have active pickups, your pickups cannot be either. If you do have to replace your electronics, you can find a large variety and even upgrade your parts by searching eBay. The good thing is that you havce a guitar, and guitar parts are abundant, relatively cheap, and most people change out electronics just to achieve a different sound.

If you are so inclined, most good guitar shops will diagnose your problem for cheap and apply the cost of the diagnosis to the cost of the repair. Good luck, and I hope I have given you some information to work with.

Thank you for using FixYa

I'm think about buying an alexi 200 guitar, but i want to replace the esp pick up for an emg 81. Is there a place for the battery the pickup will require?


There should be enough room inside for the battery. If there isn't you could do some routing to the body to make it fit. I personally don't have this guitar but more than likely you can position the 9v battery to fit. To keep it from moving around, you can put a piece of sponge in the cavity.
