Topic: installing a LR Baggs M1 active pickup
I had a new BR 160 Blueridge guitar and took it to the local music store, purchased a M1 active Pickup and wanted the store to install it, so they agreed to do it for $35.00. I was called by the store to come pick up my guitar they informed me it was finished.
So, after I arrive and began looking at the guitar at the bottom where the pin was and the jack installed it was torn loose and a gouge was in my guitar. I was unhappy to say the least and was informed it was just one of those things that could happen during the installation. The guitar is solid wood and the gouge happened taking out the pin. If they saw it was not coming out why not drill the pin out, it's about a 1/4 pin? This ruined my new guitar.
I showed my displeasure with the store owner and he agreed to replace the guitar with a new one from the factory. This was after several minutes of arguing with him. He wanted to fill it with wood putty and spray laqure over it. NO....No... So he agreed to replace my guitar. Now my question is this....They want to install this same pick up in the new guitar coming...Shame on you the first time shame on me the second, what do you think about this?
Please advise, Thanks Sonny
