Hi,
I knw there are a couple of threads on this but they are pretty old.

I just want to ask is there any updates on solving the issue of the low B string not being audible when amplified?

a quick search online shows there's a piezo transducer from artec tht might help, anyone tried this before on there bass?

here's a link from ebay for the piezo: https://www.ebay.com/itm/ARTEC-PIEZO-PI ... 2080994713

I'm not very familiar with Fender's acoustic basses, but isn't that link transducer, PP637B, for a six string bass?
A five string version would be PP537B.

But in general with all piezo pickups, if leveling the saddle slot & checking all electronic contacts don't help, getting new parts is about the only way to go. Either just a new transducer, or a whole preamp system.

due to the size of the saddle, only the 6 string version of the transducer will allow full contact
