volume loss with wound g

Postby goldbrick » Tue Dec 02, 2008 7:36 pm

got a volume loss with wound g on my Les Paul. Guitar has a junior bridge so not adjustable

A compressor helps a bit but puzzled as to why this occurs --using d addario jazz 11's

I know back in the day--strats had staggered pole pieces to account for this and I could raise the bucker pole piece on this guitar--but does the wrap kill that much conductivity ?

There's no conductivity involved, simply mass of ferromagnetic material. Round wire wound around a round wire core has air spaces between it, so is not as massive as a solid wire of the same outside diameter. I usually use a wound third string and haven't encountered any volume issues, though.

Same here...seems like more of a pole issue to me.

I'd raise the pole piece.

I'm terribly sorry, but I couldn't resist...

Wound G-strings and raised pole pieces usually make my volume level go up, not down! :mrgreen:
