Just got a Kay electric in that I'm guessing is from the early 60s. It has 3 speedbump pickups, chicken head knob, replacement Bigsby, the usual Kay stuff.
The problem is that it's not loud at all. The pickups seem to be not putting out. I've adjusted them very close to the strings and no dice. It doesn't make any difference what the switch position is in, all the pickups are very quiet. I mean I have to crank a 100 watt amp to play along with others.
The fact that all the pickups are uniformly quiet makes me think it is a switch or wiring thing rather than the pickups being bad. Wishful thinking, maybe...It's gonna be a bear getting this thing apart.
Anybody have any experience with these things? Any ideas? Thanks.
