Dead String - Is this solder connection supposed to be bridged? in Shuriken Posted October 26, 2017 I received my Shuriken yesterday from Zzounds and to my dismay, the A string is dead when using any modeling. I have a return authorization, but decided to just look and see if there were any obvious loose connections. Everything looked to be in order, but I did see one solder joint that has bridged 2 points on the PCB. Anyone know if this is normal? I just hate to send this thing back in and wait for the replacement. Sooooo bummed. Disregard. I used a small screwdriver and moved the wire under the piezo for the A string and behold, sound. Appears there is a loose connection under the saddle. THAT I can deal with. Mod, delete this if you wish.
