    Hi,

    Recently i bought a Prs Hollowbody II but when i try to use the piezo the volume is very low in comparison with the magnet pickups (like 60% lower). Do you think there's something wrong with it?
    Please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Tyler

    Two things you should check:

    1. Is the battery OK?

    2. If you open the electronic compartment, you can adjust the volume of the piezo on the circuit board. By default it should be set set somewhere in the middle, at least that's where it is set in my P22.

    I've done everything, adjust trim pots, changed battery and clean. I think its damaged or needs soldier because one string does not sound at all, the 2nd one. But i wonder if the piezo can be repaired or do i have to replace it.
    I really appreciate your help.
    Thanks in advance!

    If you are in the States, ship that puppy to the PTC for some TLC. There is definitely something wrong.

    PTC is PRS's in-house repair shop and dream maker! It's in Maryland. I don't know anyone in the SD area, but I'm sure there are some good luthiers there.

    I have two PRS piezo guitars and I love the bridges.
