I have a Hofner Shorty with a fault. The second string can hardly be heard. Will I need a new pickup or can this be fixed?
If a new pickup is needed, what are the suggestions, the existing humbucker has got a good deal of drive on all other strings and I have been happy with it so far

That's pretty unusual, for a specific string to be inaudible. I guess it's possible a pole piece became demagnetized somehow? Have you tried new strings?
Yeah, I just fitted new D'Addarios. I have opened up the pickup and it looks like a single magnet crosses/touches all 12 poles, and all a similarly magnetic.
