Why is one of my Variax 500 guitars louder than the other

Recommended Posts

My sound man told me that when I switch between my 2 Variax 500 guitars, there is a noticeable change in volume.

Why would this be and how would I fix it?

You can fix this by using Workbench to adjust the string volumes (which may have been done in the past, perhaps by a previous owner if you bought them used).

 

Also, a previous owner may have replaced the original piezo pickups. I did that with my Variax 300, replacing the original L.R. Baggs with Graphtech pickups. The sound was noticeably louder with the Graphtechs.
