Just string an old guitar with Fender's pure nickel wound 009 gauge. I don't have any prior knowledge whether the pickup is faulty or not. The issue is the B string not picked up by the guitar pickup. Things that I've tried;
- Putting e or any other string which is not B on B string spot, the string will get picked up just fine.
- Putting the B string on any other spot does not make it got picked up by the guitar.
- Tried using a different amps with combination above, still the same result.
- Tried using new string (still same brand), same result.
I have limited experience with the instrument. I don't know if it is the pickups fault or the B string is not actually a nickel wound. Does faulty pickup usually just fail to pickup a specific string or a specific string spot? or both?
Right now I'm considering checking the pickup's configuration, wiring and what not. No prior experience so I would like some feedback on where I should start. Try a different string set/brand?
Thank you for your time.
