so i got this new dimavery fr-621 (german brand)
and yes it sounds really impressive , more then i suspected

but today i played with my bandmates and the guitar just wasn't loud enough
even if i turned the volume of my amp on max it wasnt loud
i'm sure that it wasnt the amp , so maybe the cable?its new too , but a very cheap one

and saturday is my bands first gig
so should i rather lend me a guitar from a friend or do you think it'll be okay?
the'v got their one amps at the gig

and is there any way to fix it when itits the guitars fault?

hope sbd can help me

Check the wiring of your pickups. It could be a short circuit.

were you by any chance using the single coil?


Didnt understand what you meant ( I#m german^^)
if you mean if i used the single coil: yes
and if it was louder : no
#12
what i mean is the single coil won't be as loud as the humbuckers in your guitar.

If you only used the single coil and the other guy was using buckers ....

well in that case i'd say, check thr control cavity, make sure everything is wired up properly .... if it isnt, fix it, if it is .... new pickups or a new amp.

I would also check the output jack from the guitar and see if it's connected correctly. Also get a wiring diagram and see if all the conections are done correctly, check for a loose wire in the back of your guitar. Is the sound low on all pickups, does it get louder even for a second if you shake the guitar a little?

if none of that works, try bypassing the volume pot, sometimes those can be faulty.

Usually the pickups manufacturer has them on his site. Try to find out who makes them or who designes them, maybe there are also forums for the manufacturer of the guitar that has more info. I know both Seymour Duncan and EMG sited have wiring diagrams for a lot of combinations so you might want to check those too.

Did you check for a loose wire? Everything looks connected in the back cavity of your guitar?

Also try what Kid_Thorazine said, bypass the volume pot with a piece of metal and see if the volume goes up.

Is the guitar new or you bought it used? If used maybe the previous owner changed the pickups and did not make all the connections correctly.

If it has batteries they could be dying. My dad's bass has batteries and they were going dead and acted very similar to what you described.

Hey, man, I hate to hear that this is happening to you!
It happened to me before. (But make sure and test the guitar with a different cable!)
I would unscrew whatever covers the input jack and do a basic look to see if any wires look stripped or broken/loose... If there are, go buy a soldering iron and some solder and you can fix it real easy. Or, of course, get a pro to do it.
If there aren't any broken wires near the input, I would take it to a pro to check it out to make sure you have it fixed before your gig...
