  • Repair an acousticaster preamp

    I am writing to enquire if you help me with a repair to my LH Godin Acousticaster L.R. Baggs model (SN #15736), which I purchased on consignment from the 12th Fret back in December 2005. I had admired this instrument (from the time I saw Ed Robertson of the BNL play one), and was elated to find an LH model! It is my favourite guitar and I play it regularly.

    Anyway, somehow I broke the stem on the treble tone control(see photo). The slider itself still works and can be adjusted using a modified toothpick, and the guitar itself works fine. Still, I am wondering if there is a way to repair this. Any advice would be appreciated.

      Hi, new member here... Same question for PEQ11.

      I have a PEQ11 out of a Godin A12 and the slide pots are damaged. It's a part made by Alpha but I need to know the part number. Here is my best guess at the actual part specifications and ordering info. The part number is formed by selecting the sub-codes on the page.

        Hey LouisB,
        That is the older version of that slider, which was originally discontinued by the manufacturer, forcing LR Baggs to redesign the preamp with a different part. That looks like the right part, but I can't be 100% sure of the compatibility since the older paper records are not available.

        If the pins line up with the older PCB, it should work.
