Hello ! I just purchased a used VXT for a fair price ; the only problem is my bridge pickup does not work . Is this something i can trust the local guitar tech to fix ? The motherboard inside has me worried . Any thoughts/suggestions ? Thanks !

When you say the bridge pickup do you mean the bridge humbucker or the fishman powerbridge ?

I would trust any Tech that you already trust!
It's either a short or break in the pickup, the connection or the circuit board.

Two of the three are easy fixes.
