Hi there,

My Acousticaster has recently started humming, sounding just like a grounding problem on a regular electric guitar. My guitar tech has checked out all the wiring and connections which are all fine. He has traced the source of the hum to the under saddle pickup itself. If you touch the saddle the hum increases. If you press firmly down on the saddle the hum stops completely.

He thinks there may be a delamination problem between the saddle and the pickup itself. Has anyone experienced a similar issue and can it be repaired. If not repairable, does anyone know what the pickup is in an Acousticaster? Godin says its a proprietary pickup, but I assume its an LR Baggs LB6.

Any help would be much appreciated.
