Parker P-36 electronics problem
« on: March 23, 2013, 02:09:53 PM »
Hi, I have a P-36 and am having a weird problem with it that I don't how to fix, as it was only a relatively cheap model I doubt it's worth sending to Parker to get it fixed as I live in the UK and its out of warranty.

The guitar has a terrible almost fuzzy sound through the piezo pickup and the magnetic pick ups don't seem to work at all anymore.
Has anyone here experienced a similar issue to the one shown in this video I recorded?

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to the Parker Forum adwilk! I'm not familiar with P-36's but it sure sounds like a bad battery, even though you've changed it. So if it's not that, I've got nothin'. Sorry.   ???
