  • Repair LB6 possible

    Hi,

    I have an early Godin Acousticaster. The LB6 pickup seems to be broken. The light e-string is much less loud than the b-string. Pressing down the saddle inlay at the e-string makes a clicking sound and the pickup is working. Is there a way to fix this? Will the current LB6 fit as a spare part?

    Hey bklbkl,
    If the pickup is clicking when you press down on it, the saddle might not be seated completely flat in the slot, which would cause a string balance issue. If you can't get the saddle to sit flat, you may be able to use a piece of tape (electrical or Scotch) under the quiet string to bridge the gap a bit. In many cases, a small layer of tape or something similar will make up for the loss of contact and fix the balance issue. If not, the LB6 design had not changed, so a newer pickup would work just fine with the older electronics in that guitar.

            Hi,

            the new Lb6 works like a charm! I had to drill a new hole for the cable, because the position has changed. But now, it sounds like new!
