Keith Urban Night Star electric
I have # 10,836 of 11,100 in the raw wood. Beautiful guitar but those chinese girls can’t solder! Worked fine for a few days then the bridge pickup quit. Found a cold solder joint on the bridge volume control. Had to remove the wires and re-solder them. Works great now. But I shouldn’t have to do that with a new guitar. I realize these guitars get shipped all over the world and are no doubt subject to great humidity changes, etc. So I wasn’t too surprised when I found the problem. But still . . HSN & Keith’s name are on the line. Sure don’t need anyone bad mouthing them about such issues.
It worked again for a little while then it quit again. Not sure why but I suspect it’s the bridge pickup voulme control. Thought it would be cheaper to simply order a $5 replacement B500K potentiaometer from Amazon rather than go through the expense and hassle of returning the entire guitar package through HSN.
