I have tried several pickups, a Schertler basik stickon, another external transducer and an internal KandK transducer. Through all of these systems I get a similar, crappy sound that is characterised by a change of tone, similar to a banjo sound. When the guitar is unplugged, it sounds great but i cant get anything to sound right plugged in. My bridge has been hollowed out. I have tried the pickups in different spots, I have muted the strings between the bridge and tailpiece with foam... but no success. Is it the ghost of young Django you think? Please advise if anyone has run into this odd situation.
