    Now I've tested even the older Godin Acoustibass
    The neckheavieness is ok for me, BUT the E str didn't sound as good as theother strings (lower output and lesser "mmwwooaahh")
    Anyone who recognize that problem?
    Soloutions?
    The action on the bass was verry low (almost no/flat rielief)
    could that affect the E string sound
    It was stringed with old flatwounds

    The problem occured both when plugged and unplugged
    (then I guess it has nothing to do with the LR Baggs pietzo system)

    Resurrecting this thread because yesterday I found the piezo bridge wire on my Godin Acoustibass was tangled in some of the resinating rods on the E string side. I wrapped some electrical tape around the wire and used the cover to hold it down away from the rods.
