I had bought a tansen electric with 2 single pickups and a dual coil pick up. I bought it for like 5k, i bought a sammick ss10 amps yesterday for like 1900Rs. I just realized one thing the output from the amps is very distorted and if i hold all the string together, the distortion is reduced, its like the distortion is from the strings vibrating itself. Another thing i realized is that when i hold the volume knob towards the guitar, the distortion is very much gone. Maybe the guitar had a small fall before i had purchased it. What should i do, i'm planning on opening the guitar myself, because returning it to the shop is out of the question becasue its a 4 hour ride and i got college to go to. Another thing i think my guitar is a little overweight, seriously, its like 5 - 6 kilos, i just tried out a givson blue diamond when i bought the amps, and that guitar didn't weight anything at all. Does any other tansen owner agree with me, and what about the price of the tansen, is it a good price. Question? 1) What to do about the distortion from the amps, give me advice on how to fix it myself, i believe it can be loose connection of the volume knob or something like that? 2) How much would this guitar cost, its metallic blue, no model number, it has made in india sticker behind the fret board, i'm asking because i heard that tansen prices atart from 6-7k. 3) Is my guitar serioulsy overweight? 4) There are 5 sound pick options, what exactly are they for? 5) What is a dual coil humbucker? 6) There is a 4 inch metal rod hanging from the bride, doea that have any specific purpose? Hope to see some replies.
