Does this sound right? I replaced the strings (I broke the G string messing with it), and all I had laying around was an old set of cheap electric strings. I got it all tuned in and plugged in just out of curiosity, and low and behold the pick up works just fine. I looked at the strings I replaced and noticed like a plastic or nylon coating on them. So I'm really not sure whether I just got lucky and if that was all there was to it, or if somehow I bumped something just the right way and now it's fixed (temporarily). I'm going to go get a much heavier set of strings and hope for the best for now, but if that is sounding like a possible issue as to why it wasn't working please let me know I'd appreciate it.
