Hello everyone - first post.
I have a 2004 Gibson j-100 xtra that I have had a problem with since new. It plays and sounds awesome, but, when plugged in, the high E string cannot be heard as loud as any of the other strings. I have a 99 J-100 as well that doesn't have this problem and sounds fabulous.
What I've done so far:
1. went to a Gibson authorized repair person who leveled the saddle bottom and reinstalled the piezo pickup. Still unbalanced.
2. sent it to Fishman who installed their newest pickup system at the time, the Fishman Matrix.
I bought the guitar to use live, but when you can't hear the high E string, it's pretty useless.
