How to fix acoustic loose cable problem.
« on: January 05, 2021, 08:48:38 pm »
Hi, I need help with some loose cabling inside my acoustic/electro fender guitar. I can't see any attachments inside so I have no idea where the cable goes. It's making my guitar sound terrible so any help would be greatly appreciated.
Some pics to show what I mean.

Does it still work properly but the wires inside are just moving around? I had this happen with one of my electro Ukes, the sticky pads had dried out and come off. I got some new pads and stuck the wiring back into the body cavity as tidy as I could, it worked fine.

Ah yeah, it's a big forum and im new so I missed that. Thank God that anti spam capture is gone now too.. that was driving me crazy. Some of the pics it's more or less impossible to see what the heck it is. Anyway thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I will edit my first post to show pics .

Yeah it works but sounds terrible and the wires are hanging down and rattling. I can't see any old attachments in the guitar and it is only a few months old. I have posted some pics now so you can see what I mean. Where would I buy the attachments and where would I stick them?

I used the Command or Unibond strips off Amazon, just peeling off the one side. All you need to do is make sure it’s tidy and without any runs of loose wiring.
