Diamonds of mayhem

replacing/fixing the pickup in an applause acoustic guitar.

Recommended Posts

its been a problem ever since its original owner tried to float it down the Columbia river in 1989, (so I'm assuming water damage:banghead:)

I'd like to get it working again,(or more likely, replace the pickup)

Anyone know how to do this? and what parts I need to find?

first, you want to find out what kind of pickup it is. It's most likely the 'under the saddle' type of pickup, with piezo crystals.

The water probably didn't do anything to the crystals, but to the electronics connected to them. I really have no idea how one would go about fixing this.

But first things first, find out what type, and you can just replace it.
