clay-man Posted May 2, 2013 Share Posted May 2, 2013 Holy crap. I'm, so stoked right now. No jinx, but I think I fixed my guitar! I stripped an audio wire, took the copper ground wire, cut off some of that and stuck it between my wonky piezo and saddle. So far so good right? I took the burden of a whammy bar and put it back on to test if it truly is fixed. My whammy was one of the biggest things that threw my piezo's grounding out since it easily moves the piezo element when you dive bomb. Guess what? I've been using it like crazy and NO CUT OUTS! Seriously! Holy crap I think it's fixed! Here's to hoping that I don't jinx myself. So anyone who has a piezo with a grounding issue, a quick fix is to stick conductive material between the saddle and the piezo. You'll have to lift the piezo out of the socket in the saddle first. Make sure it's relatively thick but not too thick. It will secure the grounding it. I hope this helps a lot of sad Variax users with this issue! Cheers! 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
