There is probably a paper thin film with a wire on it underneath the saddle. You can unplug this wire and remove the film and wire, this is your "pickup", and you can replace just that piece.
Have you checked your battery and headphones?
Or, ditch it and get a SoloEtte. Seriously, I've known the guy who builds them. You would never have a problem like that with Roscoe Wright's guitar. You can find them used every now and then, quite reasonably.
No, have not lowered the saddle plus have tried different ones, tusq and bone, with similar results.
Yes I have seen plastic film under the saddle, getting worn out for the bass side, I thave the thought about just replacing the pickup so is a god idea, I should lock into that.
Battery and headphones is not the problem, I often use the line out to computer, same trouble there.
I don't want another silent guitar, or sell this one, I'm not giving up. I relly like this guitar otherwise.
