VARIAX ACOUSTIC HELP!

Recommended Posts

I HAVE OWNED A 700 ACOUSTIC APPX 7 YEARS NOW AND IT HAS NEVER WORKED PROPERLY FOR LONG. SOMETIMES IT'S A SIX STRING SOMETIMES 5 AND OFTEN NO SOUND AT ALL. I'VE HAD MANY MUSIC STORES AND GUITAR REPAIR PEOPLE LOOK AT IT AND IF THEY CAN FIX IT THE REPAIR ONLY HOLDS FOR A WEEK MAX. I HAVE HAD SEVERAL OF THE PICK UPS REPLACED SEVERAL TIMES AND EVEN BUILT A GUARD OVER THE BRIDGE TO PREVENT THE DELICATE PICKUPS FROM BREAKING. I DON'T PLAY PARTICULARLY ROUGH OR BEND STRINGS EXCESSIVLEY YET THIS PROBLEM PERSISTS. I HAVE GONE DOWN TO 10 GUAGE ELECTRIC GUITAR STRINGS AND THAT DIDN'T HELP(ONLY MADE IT SOUND WEAK). I LOVE THE GUITAR BUT I AM AFRAID TO PLAY IT OUT LIVE FOR FEAR OF EQUIPTMENT FAILURE. LATELY I WAS TOLD THAT THE PROBLEM MAY BE WHERE THE RIBBON WIRE CONNECTS TO THE CPU SO I TRIED BUT CANNOT LOCATE A NEW RIBBON WIRE. HAS ANYONE ELSE GONE THROUGH THIS ORDEAL AND IF SO DO YOU HAVE A SOLUTION ? ANY IDEAS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
