Hi There,

My Godin Acousticaster is buzzing. It goes away if I am touching the strings and either the jack or the metal control plate at the same time.

Any ideas on where I should be looking?

Thanks,

Mark

Well I have taken it to my tech and we have found the problem is stemming from the pickup itself. If you touch the saddle the hum increases and if you press down firmly on it the hum dissappears completely. We suspect a delamination issue between the saddle and the pickup itself.

Does anyone have any experience repairing such a pickup? Whilst its a proprietary Godin pickup, it appears to the the same as the LR Baggs LB6.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!
