FDP Forum / FDP Unplugged - Acoustic Instruments / Problem with my Takamine EF-341SC

I have a gig coming up so I got out the Takamine to check the strings and make sure everything was ok.
Never had a problem with this guitar. I plugged it into my amp and got a pretty loud buzz. Sort of like a grounding buzz/hum. I changed to a new 9v battery and no change. Loosened the strings and reached inside to check the pickup plug and battery plug. One of these plugs seemed a little loose so I got some needle nose pliers and made the RCA plug tighter. I was going to switch out the RCA plug but there is not really enough wiring to reach it easily. I messed with this for quite some time and finally there was no buzz/hum. I wonder what the problem was. I hate having equipment problems. Just glad I checked it before heading out to the gig.

It most likely lost the ground on the RCA. They will hum just like home audio when they lose that connection. I think ya done good there brother.

I had the 12 string version of that guitar and all at once lost all signal about a month after I bought it. The bridge saddle slot was a bit too wide for the saddle and it would tilt forward causing a loss of contact with the piezo element underneath. The parent company that administers warranty would do nothing but shim the slot. It worked but wasn't correct. I had it fixed and sold the guitar. Sadly it sounded great and played very well.
