I have a set of 11-48 12string i have never strung a 12string guitar before.can you tell me what string goes in what hole? 48 40 30 26 20 16 14 14 12 11 11 9
the Heaviest string of each string pair is placed at the top (closest to your nose). In fact, if you look at the nut, (the notched thingy that spaces and holds the strings at the right spacing up by the tuning pegs) the notches in nut are wider than the paired string for this reason. That may not be true on all 12 strings but it is on mine. So the typical arrangement is heavy string, matching string. Heavy String, matching string. Except on the bottom 3 pairs where the actual string thickness can be the same. One caution note here....when tuning a 12 string, tune it a whole step lower. So rather than tuning it at EADGBE, tune it at DGCFAD then use a capo on the 2nd fret to bring the tuning up to EADGBE.
The reason for tuning a whole step lower is because on the top 3 pairs of strings you normally tune the thinner string an octave higher to give that 12 string sound. So if you start tuning at EADGBE, those thinner strings for the top EAD strings are going to be pretty tight and they will snap. So much safer to tune a whole step lower and just use a capo!!! Good Luck

Epiphone EJ 200 CE/AN Electro Acoustic Guitar Wiring Diagram
Does this guitar have a esonic 2 system, if so the other pickup is piezo pickup located under the saddle, there should be two wires coming from the pre-amp just remove the pre-amp from the body and make sure that the two wires are still plugged in and attached to the pickups, these are plugs like a small headphone style plug, just check these and the wires are held in by small wire clips,one of the wires may have came out of the clips...hope this helps I will look for a schematic for you and post it if I find one...Good Luck!!!

My 15”Jenson pa speaker. Is not working . Very little sound coming out
If it's only on one speaker the first check if the cable from the amp to that speaker is not ripped off .Tru swopping the speaker around to the side which is working if it still has no so sound the maybe you should check on the amp to see if you did not cut the stereo down for that channel .See that the balance dial is in the middle. Last of the easy stuff to check is to take your headphones and see if you get even volume of both sides don't forget to check if there is a stereo/mono switch you want this switch to be set to stereo though the sound will no change much cause your bass may be a little lower on mono.When you have finally tested all of these and no satisfaction, then one of your transistors of that channel is blown. But it can also be a cap that is leaking or blown.You can open the amp but disconnect the power before touching or opening .Look at the channel which is not working to see if you have a cap swollen or blown then replace it with it's same value micro farad (pf).It's difficult to say what else can be wrong but those are the first to look at.It will take even me around a hour to say whats wrong .Fault finding is what takes time . good luck
