Greetings, I recently purchased an Ovation Magnum I from Guitar Center. I got a pretty good deal on it considering the condition, but after receiving it and plugging it in, I have discovered that the neck pickup is not working. There are no loose or broken wires outside of the pickup casing. I pulled the neck pickup out to examine it, but the back plate looks like it has been welded/soldered on. There is no way for me to check the connections inside the pickup. Does anyone know if this is how that pickup is designed? I know this guitar is old and has probably been tinkered with by more than a couple of people over the years. Also of note, the screws that adjust the volume of the pole pieces in the neck pickup look badly rusted, but since I can't open the casing, I really have no idea of how bad things are inside. I live in Longmont, Colorado. Do any of you know of a reputable shop around Boulder, Longmont, or Denver that would be able to get the electronics back in order? Anyone besides John Baxendale of Colorado Guitar Company that is. I took my Ric there at the beginning of the year, and for a variety of reasons I won't be going back. Thanks to all!
