Question about Car Audio & Video
Hi I bought a used guitar washburn d46 with a lr baggs pickup 3.2
When I plug the cable into the amplifier the sound is very low even if my battery is new and even if the sound and the gain on the guitar and on the amplifier is to the maximum.
What is the problem with my guitar
The windings of the pickup might be bad. Basically these are magnetic pickups that take the string vibrations and by using transducers converts the vibrations into electrical energy and the by using preamplifier's and finally a main amplifier it takes the electrical energy and then turns it into sound. It sounds like in your case the pickups need to be repaired or replaced.
Now I would check the amplifier first and the run a test on the output of the guitar to make sure the potentiometers (volume, tone, etc) are ok. If these are ok then I would really suspect the pickups.
I hope this helps,
