    Majesty with no sound

    I just got a music man majesty a few hours ago. Finally get home and plug it in. Has sound for about 1 second then nothing. I can pull the cable out plug and plug it back and and it's always the same thing. Changed the batteries and it's the same thing. Any suggestions?

    I just noticed if I unplug the cable, plug it back in and hold down the peizo volume knob I have sound until i let off of it.

    After jacking in, toggle the piezo selector switch (the one near your left breast). Sometimes (I think) the guitar thinks there's no cable so it shuts off the preamp and you need to wake it up. Works for me when this happens.

    I already have. I've gotten a shipping label from them. Just wanted to make sure someone hasn't ran into this issue and had a quick fix. Like i said I just bought it yesterday and really don't want to send it in lol i want to play it. But I found another thread where someone was having the exact same issue and sent it in. It had some criss crossed wires from the power supply.

    So frustrating but what can I tell you, no production line of any guiitar maker is 100% perfect and you've just been unlucky in this particular instance. But EBMM customer service are excellent and they'll look after you!

    Had similar problem with my Majesty. No sound at all brand new from box. Posted a couple messages here. Installed new batteries, same thing. Turns out I had to push in and hold the Piezo volume knob while looking at the back plate of the guitar. There are two lights (Amber & Blue). Hold the knob in, the Amber light should come on briefly. Keep holding, the Blue light should show, then go out. After that, everything worked as it should. But I had to go through that routine every time I plugged it in (sometimes twice). Recently however, it just works when I plug in with no problem. Not sure what changed. I do know one thing. The instruction sheet sucks! Instead of some crappy sketched diagram trying to explain the operation with drawn pictures, just explain the operation modes in plain ENGLISH. Is that to much to ask for a 2k+ instrument? Hope this helps if you haven't already sent the guitar back!

    I'm having the same problem,
    sound for 1 second when plugged in then nothing.
    or if i hold the pizo volume in while plugin it in it will have sound until i release it.

    i have tryed switching between mono and stereo but it hasent fixed the problem.

    im going to be playing the next few gigs with gaffa tape holding the pizo vollume down but this is going to be anoying.
    has anyone found a fix for this?

    I had for the most part the same issue apart from the trick with holding down the piezo volume.

    Anyway contact EBMM service they are super fast and helpful.

    The first thing i got to do before sending the guitar in is this procedure:

    Reset procedure that will reset the electronics in the Majesty. Try plugging the guitar in, removing the batteries and leaving the batteries out for 5 minutes. Once the 5 minutes is up: remove the plug then reinstall the batteries
