  1. Yes, thanks. I have 036!
  2. Excellent - thanks.
  3. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll give them a try - maybe cut a new saddle altogether. Since the warranty is up, there's no harm in giving it a go myself. I was lucky that the Gibson authorized repair guy took pity on my out of warranty issue and did it for free (although he didn't fix it), and I have a friend at Fishman who had the Matrix installed for free....
  4. Search feature: How do you do a search for Johnny A. signature Gibson? The forum search function won't allow "A."
  5. 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. Still unbalanced. I bought the guitar to use live, but when you can't hear the high E string, it's pretty useless. Any suggestions? thanks Billy Claire
