Love my new SE Hollowbody II Piezo......except....
Question is that the Piezo pickup is super hot, it's probably more than twice as loud as the magnetic pickups. Is this normal?
It really is a big difference. Thanks for any help.
Are you playing through an electric or acoustic amp?

The piezos do come out hot (especially when blended with the magnetic pickups), but when I switch my Katana to the acoustic amp mode, the piezos are perfect volume when maxed out, even when mixed with the magetics.

However, you can always unscrew the input jack and pull out the circuit board. There's a master volume adjustment dial for the piezo there.
