Hey,

I got an Ibanez AEL40SE with a B-Band® UST™ Pickup. When recording, notes on the highest three frets seem to fall out. I uploaded a small sample to my profile. Does anyone know why this might happen? Is the pickup broken?

thanks

If its the "untitled" sample then there is nothing wrong with your pickup - you need to adjust the action.

it's very hard to "break" a pickup. It's just a magnet, slugs, pole pieces and wire.

If a pickup is broken, it will stop producing sound. It won't selectively drop three notes.
You need to adjust the action and possibly level the frets.

Ok thanks, I'll look into the action. Strange though, the strings sound just fine to me when I play the guitar acoustically.

Okay....how exactly would you go about raising an undersaddle piezo transducer, eh?


Try everything above. Then put on some heavier strings and make sure you've got a nice fresh battery in that preamp.
