  • Scratchy volume, no sound, possible endpin problem on Lyric

    I bought the Lyric when it first came out, and I love it. Of course, two days before a gig, I get this scratch sound while adjusting the volume even though nothings getting into the amplifier. I know the endpin has something to do with it, because it makes all kinds of irritating noise if you roll the jack inside the endpin. I don't live anywhere near a luthier, so I'd happily take some advice as my gig is coming up on Saturday. I realize it's probably 4 years old, but I really haven't used it very much as I just recently started to gig. By the way, I did find a washer inside that looks as though it may have belonged on the preamp (inside the guitar), if that helps.

    Hey Cain61,
    When you say that it makes noise when you "roll the jack inside the endpin", what exactly do you mean? Is the jack loose inside the tailblock?

      If I roll the angled input jack in a circle it makes a popping noise. If roll the volume control it makes an audible scratchy sound. You can hear both sounds audibly through the amp. I tried different amps and cables; the issues are still the same. Thanks for responding so quickly; I'm impressed. I should have checked sooner.

        It's probably going to be necessary to send the unit in for repair. If you want to email me at [email protected], I can get you the details.

          Great, man. Will do. I appreciate it. Thanks. I know it's long out of warranty, but I have a gig coming up on on 10/14 that I'll need it for.
