I've just bought a gorgeous 1981 Country Artist. Plays beautifully but the piezo pickup sounds awful. Harsh, some strings louder than others and raspy. Do they wear out? Is there an easy after-market replacement?

Thanks guys!

We do, maybe hoping for some additional info. Generally, when it sounds bad it's because of a weak battery. FWIW, just because a battery is new, it's worth testing.

I'll change the PP3. The signal is strong, just raspy strings and crucially a huge variation in volume among the strings with the low E in particular much louder, even with treble turned to max.

Anyone else ever had issues with the bridge piezo? I guess regular members don't see this forum...

My Apologies, thought I had already posted that I upgraded you to full member to post in the general forum.
