Post subject:  Fender Acoustasonic Tele string balance

I'm new to the Fender forum so hello everyone.

I just tried out my new Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster, I love the guitar and the one I got would be a keeper if the high E string wasn't noticeably quieter than the other strings. Does anyone know if there's any kind of adjustment available inside the guitar, or do I just have a bad UST (or a badly installed one) that Fender will have to replace?

Thanks, John

Hi, welcome and sorry for the late answer…

I'm guessing the problem is with the under-saddle-transducer; simply because that's the usual suspect of this kind of guitars.
But since it's a new guitar, I'd suggest that (instead of fiddling with it yourself and possibly voiding the warranty), you contact the seller and take it to their shop for a checkup & repair (/replace/refund).

I had the same issue and since my guitar was in warranty I took it to get it fixed. Turns out it was the UST :)
