|Hey Everyone; |
My 2008 Collector's Edition has had pre amp issues. Ive owned it since new.
It seems that repeated battery changes (at an angle) broke off one of the connection pins in the unit. It made the sound very honky and nasally.
My luthier tried fixing it but it only lasted a couple days.
So now we are looking to source parts for it, or even, a whole replacement PreAmp unit.
Can anyone advise where I can point my luthier to source parts and/or talk tech about this job please???
ALso perhaps in connection to this; I also have the AL di Meola II model CL. The pre amp also had issues where the actually housing needed replacing because of it getting worn and not seating properly. With that guitar I have real battery problems. Replacement seems necessary really often. Could a similar fault/broken/shorted connection in the pre amp connectors cause battery leakage to happen draining them too often?
