61xx wiring loom question
On and off my Anniversay has had an irritating rattle that is usually most noticeable on the middle (D,G) strings. I've spent hours before trying to work out which piece "wasn't tied down right", thinking it was coming from around the bridge/bigsby area but not being able to work out why. Now it's winter again, the rattle has suddenly come back, and upon closer inspection today, I worked out the rattle is coming from the jack area, not the bridge.
So I take a gander, and lo!, it does appear as though the wiring loom is meant to be doublesided taped somewhere inside.... and is now not. It's an annoying issue I had with one of my ukuleles once (double sided tape and non-polished wood surfaces and Australian climate don't mix apparently).
I jiggled it around a bit and tried again, and the rattle disappeared, so now I'm thinking that if this is wherever it's supposed to be, the rattle won't be there.
So my question for you guys is.... do you know where in the blazes this is meant to be stuck, and do you have any suggestions as to how I can get it to stay there so this rattle goes away and I stop feeling like pulling a Who on the thing!
It appears from the photo, that white pad just needs regluing to the top, it looks like they use a pretty generic plastic fixing, they just have a sticky sponge pad to attach them to the underside of the top usually. You can get those double sided pads from car or craft shops or online, the car type are pretty strong as they use them to hold badges or mirror replacements, pop one on the white plastic bit and stick it back to the top. You may get to it through the F hole but you'll probably make things easier if you take out a pickup. I suppose you could just use glue, but that could prove harder to undo if you ever need a rewire
That's what I've been thinking... just wasn't sure where it was originally attached. Wish I could get a camera in there somehow and see if I can see residue anywhere to know where it fell off from..... Frustrating!
