Yeah, i doubt it's purely the cables too, but it's an easy thing to do and worth cleaning them once in a while, they can cause problems. Be gentle!

Do what Patzag said, you don't need to buy a whole new bridge. Saddles of various styles are available on eBay, wiguitar is a seller who has many parts for Parkers.

However i suspect it could be the board, given the piezo vol is low any way.., in which case...very difficult to impossible to fix without specialised tools etc.

There's no original replacement boards to be had anymore unless you find one on eBay or you could try the Facebook Parker Lovers page.

There are other pre-amp boards that will work, there's a Fishman pre-amp board that was used in the refined series (can't remember the model name etc, someone here will know) that works fine, but you will lose the Master Vol control.

Or you could go completely passive, and bypass the electronics completely, in which case you would need an external preamp of some sort for the piezo.

But fingers crossed, a good clean will fix it!

You know, the noise must be there the whole time, the gain is just boosting it to very audible levels; just to confirm, there is no noise when using the mag only, right?

The noise is only introduced when piezo is combined?
