I got a problem with my Fender Telecaster blacktop. I bought the guitar brand-new about 1 year ago and had no problems with it so far(except for the jack output that was a litte loose). It's a great guitar and it plays terrific! Too bad I'm having some diffculties with it since a few weeks. The guitar doesn't sound right.. It's kinda hard to explain but it sounds very dull, low pitched en above all BLOWN UP. The settings on my amp have no effect at all. The only thing that helps is to play with the bridge pick-up. Because of it's natural higher tone it will sound a bit more 'okay', but still not as it should.
It's kinda annoying and it really takes away the pleasure from playing this wonderful guitar.
I replaced the cable with a new one, this didn't help either. I checked the connections of the electronics and they seem fine to me.
Does anyone here have an idea what's wrong with my guitar? I hope my description was okay and that someone recognizes it!
Premising your strings aren't dead and at the same time, not having the instrument in front of anyone of us, this presents as some kind of partial shorting. Your best bet is to bring it to a COMPETENT tech for remedy. FWIW, it may be covered under warranty.
