I got my piezos replaced about two weeks ago, and so far, my Variax 300 has been working fine. However, the other day, it suddenly stopped working. Today, I tested to see if it'd work again, and I found that it did, but only if it was lying down like a lap steel guitar. Is this likely to be an issue w/ the bridge, motherboard, or something else? And if I can't fix it right away, should I simply learn to play Hawaiian music for the time being?
I'm having a very specific problem with the G-string piezoelectric pickup on my Variax 500. Much of the time, the signal goes dead; there is no sound coming from it. However, after pressing down on it, for a few seconds to a few minutes the sound will return, but it will then get fuzzy and fade out to nothing again. This started a week or two ago. Is this a grounding issue, a signal wire issue, or something entirely different? And how can it be fixed? Thanks!
